For Teaching Assistants

Graduate Teaching Assistants play an important role here at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.  They assist department chairpersons, faculty members, and other professional staff by performing teaching or teaching-related duties, including teaching lower level courses, developing teaching materials, preparing and giving examinations, and grading examinations or papers.

Dr. Judith Krauss coordinates efforts to support graduate teaching assistants through the Center for Graduate Life, including Graduate Teaching Assistant Training which is offered as an online module through Canvas at the beginning of each Fall and Spring semester. Read more about the online TA Training. In addition to GTA training, she teaches the courses Teaching at the University Level (GRAD 6001/8001) and Teaching at American Colleges and Universities:  Perspectives for International Students (GRAD 6011/8011).  She also offers workshops on a variety of teaching-related issues each semester.
