The Center for the Advancement of Teaching's TA Training Program assists TAs at UCLA to improve their teaching and advance their professional development. If you are like the majority of UCLA graduate students, you will undertake the role of a Teaching Assistant at some point during your graduate career. Becoming a successful TA is a skill that requires practice, preparation, and the collection of feedback and suggestions for improvement. The TA Training Program website is designed to answer your questions and direct you to helpful resources.
