First-Time TAs, CAs, and Graders
Brandeis’ Department of Student Rights and Community Standards provides information about student rights and responsibilities, including those relating to academic integrity (Section 4). Their website also provides resources for faculty and students related to academic integrity and the reporting form for suspected cases of academic dishonesty.
The Academic Services office provides academic advising and support to Brandeis undergraduates. Visit their website to learn more about services they offer, find advisor contact information, and explore their resources for faculty.
Brandeis Library Subject Liaisons
The Library’s Subject Liaisons are resources available to help you integrate Library resources in your teaching and to support your use of instructional technology. Find the Subject Liaison for each discipline and/or area on the Library’s Subject Liaisons page, and schedule an online appointment right from their website.
It is important to be aware of your rights and responsibilities related to use of copyrighted works as part of your teaching. Visit the Brandeis University Library’s Copyright Guide to learn more about what copyright is, how it applies to your teaching, and how to maintain compliance with copyright laws.
Student Support Services
The Support at Brandeis site is a centralized list of support resources available to Brandeis Students, with tailored lists for undergraduate and graduate students.
The purpose of Brandeis's TA/CA/TF training is to prepare you to engage with some of the most important legal, social and pedagogical considerations that instructors must navigate in higher education. Your participation will not only prepare you for teaching at Brandeis but also hone your skills as an educator.
The program includes 3-3.5 required hours of training. An additional hour of preparation is required for all international TAs, CAs, and TFs. Your participation and completion will be tracked in Workday.
Where and how do I complete the required training?
There are four separate trainings, all offered via Zoom (unless otherwise specified) and all in Eastern time.. If you completed a given training in a previous semester, you do not need to complete it again. To view the trainings you have completed, visit your student profile in Workday; click on "Personal" in the left-hand sidebar and then on "Additional Data" at the top of the screen. You will see any list of trainings; any that you have completed will have a completion date alongside them.
