Are you working with a Graduate Teaching Assistant? Did you know the Office of Teaching and Learning, in partnership with the NDSU Graduate School, offers a Teaching Assistant Learning Community (TALC)? 

The TALC is a peer-mentoring learning community that provides teaching support, constructive feedback, and peer-led discussions on best teaching practices. Teaching Assistants are automatically added to the Blackboard virtual TALC, where they can use as much or as little of the resources available as they would like.

TALC meetings take place every other week via Blackboard Collaborate for ease of access. Each meeting will include a topic discussion related to best teaching practices and provide participants with an opportunity to discuss instructional concerns, share successes, brainstorm lessons, and more. All resources from and recordings of the meetings will be posted on Blackboard for easy access and review.

The TALC is free and open to all NDSU Teaching Assistants of any discipline and level of experience. If you have any questions, please email!
