Introduction to being a TA at UVic
Hello and welcome to being a TA at UVic! My name is Gerry Gourlay and my pronouns are she/her. I am the TA Coordinator with the Division for Learning and Teaching Support and Innovation (LTSI). In my role, I am responsible for the professional development and learning opportunities available to TAs and graduate students across UVic related to TA work, teaching, and learning in higher education.
My work is dedicated to TA programming, innovation, and support, and I encourage you to connect with me if you have any questions. This newsletter outlines key workshops, supports and resources available to TAs who work at UVic. It will also contain interesting articles, or strategies and tips that relate to the resources or supports being highlighted to assist you in your work as a TA in supporting student learning.
In this month’s newsletter, we feature a warm welcome from the Dean of the Faculty of Graduate Studies. You will also see all available workshops for the month of September and early October, as well as some key supports to assist you in getting started as a TA at UVic. A hearty welcome to UVic and I am excited to be a part of your journey!
