Announcements from Madelaine Morrison, our TA Mentor.
1. There is a mandatory TA training orientation session in the department of history on Wednesday September 7th from 9 to 11am, room PA 433.
2. I would like to send a special plea out to all “returning” TAs to please contact me if they are interested in becoming a mentor/buddy to a new incoming TA. This is going to be a new experiment this year. The relationship will be fairly informal and will not take up much of your already very valuable time. We want to make sure that new students have many friendly faces to turn to for help, and it will also help foster closer relationships between the new and returning graduate cohorts. If you are interested (and we need all the people we can get!) please email historyTAmentor@carleton.ca
Stay tuned for more information about upcoming workshops and teaching resources!
