TF Orientation

All first-time Teaching Fellows and Course Assistants are required to attend a tailored half-day orientation with sessions about Title IX, resiliency, cultural identity, and campus resources. 

Following registration, you will receive an overview of the new online version of the TF and CA handbook, participate in activities that teach you about cultural identity and resiliency as teachers, and you will engage in Title IX training. 

Each of these sessions at orientation will model different ways of sharing information with students, and they have been created in collaboration with Graduate Student Affairs, the Brandeis Counseling Center, and Experiential Learning. 

Be sure to arrive at the Olin-Sang Auditorium by 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, August 23, 2016. We will break for lunch in the late morning and orientation will end at 1:30 p.m. From 1:30 - 2 p.m. you will have the opportunity to complete your I-9 in the hallway outside of the auditorium.

TF Handbook

The TF Handbook outlines available resources, describes best practices, and suggests ways to manage your classroom. In addition, it explains all the administrative procedures that TFs need to know.

Title IX Training

All graduate students with teaching duties are required to attend a Title IX educational training that emphasizes their roles as responsible reporters and instructs them on what to do if they witness, or a student discloses to them, an incident of sexual misconduct. This training is mandatory for graduate students to be able to teach at Brandeis. The training is offered near the beginning of every semester, and graduate students are required to attend only once.
