Welcome to Carleton University’s Teaching Assistant (TA) Website

TAs are on the front line of teaching, and contribute greatly to undergraduate education at Carleton. This website was specifically created to help support your work as a teaching assistant and keep you informed of the resources, support measures and initiatives available to aid in your personal and professional development.

NEW! TA Central Hub: Training and Resources

Teaching and Learning Services (TLS) has launched a Brightspace page just for TAs that offers pre-recorded training videos, resource materials, and a forum for TAs to share resources related to online teaching. To enroll in the TA Central Hub, please contact Sam Shortt.

Please note: all TAs that were previously enrolled in the cuLearn edition of the TA Central Hub have been automatically added to the Brightspace version.

Summer TA Drop-in Sessions

We are offering 5 drop-in sessions throughout July and August. These are informal safe spaces  hosted by TAs for TAs. If you have any questions about your TAship, upcoming TAship, Brightspace, TAing in an online environment, or anything else, this is the place to be (and socialize)! Please come and join us!
