Quotes from TAs:
"Entering my first year as a Graduate student, I was a novice TA and was not overly confident with my skills as a new TA at UVic. After attending two seminars facilitated by Elly Carlson, I have developed a deeper understanding respecting my TA responsibilities and have more confidence in my ability and skill set as a TA.
Elly Carlson has demonstrated sound leadership abilities while conducting TA seminars. Elly listens to concerns from TA’s and is willing to conduct seminars that accommodate TA schedules which is an amazing feat in itself.
I recommend that Graduate students seriously consider becoming a TA. Not only do you get to network with other Graduate students, you learn practical skills that may apply to future employment, and you also have fun in a terrific learning environment." Wendy Proverbs
"The TA training sessions helped to flesh out what was expected of us. It helped to clarify the relationships with our professors and students."
"Learning from others experiences was far better than being thrown straight into the thick of things."
