At Caltech, a Teaching Orientation is required for all Teaching Assistants prior to or at the start of their first appointment. The Caltech Introduction to University Teaching Program fulfills the institute's TA Orientation requirement and serves as an introduction to teaching at the university level.
The program consists of three steps:
1) RSVP for an in-person session here.
2) Complete the Online Policies Module before your scheduled in-person session (instructions will be given after your RSVP is completed).
3) Attend and actively participate in the in-person session.
Completion of both the Online Policies Module and the in-person meeting with CTLO staff are required to successfully complete the Caltech Introduction to University Teaching Program and fulfill the TA Orientation requirement.
