Being a student worker can be weird and confusing! A university is a unique workplace that requires a particular set of skills to navigate.
In this workshop, you will learn the ins and outs of being a teaching/research assistant - how to maintain a good work-life balance and a strong and respectful relationship with your supervisor; how to ensure you’re not overworked and have good limits on your time; what to know about your rights and responsibilities as a TA/RA and where you can turn if problems arise. This workshop will overview common issues that TAs/RAs encounter and discuss how to address them.
