Resources for Teaching Fellows
All first-time Teaching Fellows, Teaching Assistants, and Course Assistants are required to attend a tailored half-day orientation with sessions about pedagogy, expert bias, academic integrity, Title IX, small group discussions with advanced graduate student teachers, and library resources.
Be sure to arrive at the Shapiro Campus Center Theater by 9:00 am on Tuesday, August 28, 2018. We will break for snacks in the late morning and orientation will end at 12:30 pm. At that time, you are welcome to join other graduate students across campus at our BBQ Welcome on Chapels Field.
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.
