This forum aims to provide a platform to discuss how to provide effective training and development of teaching skills for Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTAs). Forum speakers, including teachers, administration staff and postgraduate students, from various local universities will share their experience, good practices and the challenges they have encountered. Discussion will include, but not be limited to the following sub-themes:

  1. Roles and responsibilities of GTAs in academic department
  2. Reflective teaching
  3. Challenges encountered in teaching
  4. Challenges to balance teaching and research duties
  5. Expectations for the training programme
  6. How to engage GTAs in training programme
  7. Feedback on teaching performance
  8. Collaboration with teaching departments
  9. Evidence of how GTAs benefit from training programme

We believe that postgraduates have great potential to achieve both teaching and research. All research supervisors, faculty members, administration staff and students are welcome to join us in co-constructing a way forward through the challenges our students face in seeking to maximise their teaching impact.
