Graduate TA Handbook and Resources

A Handbook for Teaching Assistants and Teaching Fellows in Arts & Sciences

When Things Go Wrong

Ideally your time as a teaching assistant will go smoothly, but sometimes things don't go as planned. Here you will find information to help you know where to go for help. We have two sections for you: one for issues you may have with faculty (particularly the instructor of record for your course), and one for issues you may have with students. Hopefully this will help you feel a little less lost when things don't go as planned.
