Create an online staff chat-room to help undergraduate teaching assistants form community, ask for help, and share teaching strategies.

  • Teaching assistants (TAs) might need answers to content or administrative questions during class, lab, office hours, grading, or preparing for class.
  • Develop a system so that TAs know how they can access real-time help from their peers and what tools they should use for sharing teaching strategies. You might use a chat room, email, a group text, a Piazza post shared only with instructors.
    • Check out Piazza, an online Wiki-style Q&A in which both students and instructors can answer questions.
