Your questions

At the August 2013 TA Training workshop, we asked participants to write down some questions that they have about being a TA. These questions ranged from preparation, to the actual in-class teaching, to the hot-potato of relationships. We have pulled these together into topic areas and responded to them (see links below).

Please note that these answers are generic, given the broad diversity of disciplines represented. We encourage you to send us any additions/deletions/corrections that you believe would be useful - we will happily make the changes!
