University of Georgia TA Policy states that TAs must be adequately prepared to teach in the college classroom. University and Regents' policies require that all new graduate teaching and laboratory assistants receive support for their instructional roles. The following TA Policy applies to all graduate students with instructional duties regardless of a student’s specific instructional responsibilities in an academic course. Departments should develop discipline-specific support for the pedagogical development of graduate assistants in preparation for their instructional responsibilities at UGA and for their future careers.
The policy states that all TAs must:
- Attend TA Orientation
- Complete GRSC 7770 or departmental equivalent, and
- For international students, demonstrate proficiency with the English language.
