International TA Orientation

Many new teaching assistants are also new to the United States. To help ease your adjustment into teaching in the U.S., the TA Project holds an annual International Teaching Assistant Orientation. This year it will be held on Wednesday, August 30, 2017 , from 8:30 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. The orientation will be held at the College Avenue Student Center on the College Avenue Campus. You may park in Lot 30 (located behind the Rutgers Student Center).

The orientation consists of a workshop (led by experienced International TAs) that introduces participants to the cultural issues involved in teaching at an American university.

Newly appointed international TAs are required to attend this orientation as well as the New TA Orientation, on Thursday, August 31, 2017. When you register for the New TA Orientation you are automatically registered for the International TA Orientation.
