Friday, January 22 (10 a.m.-12 p.m., register via this Zoom registration form)

All TAs who are new to the ISU classroom, or who have received a teaching assignment different from what they have done before, are strongly encouraged to attend this seminar. In this online workshop, teams of TAs will work together in breakout rooms to solve potential classroom scenarios on various topics such as academic dishonesty, classroom management, and inclusivity. A panel of experts will help TAs discuss appropriate steps to take when these situations occur in their classrooms.

Special Guests,

Help us welcome your new TAs to the ISU classroom!

CELT Teaching Symposium, Fall 2021


The Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching (CELT) hosts this half-day virtual program that encompasses the best teaching practices and student support resources available at Iowa State. New faculty, staff with a teaching role, and graduate teaching assistants will learn from Iowa State’s educators about how to prepare for a successful first semester of teaching and explore CELT’s services, resources, and professional development opportunities.

Our symposium goals:

  • To recognize the policies, practices, and resources for effective teaching and learning at Iowa State University.
  • To explore common student issues, successes along with various campus resources for students.
  • To discover the services, support, and development opportunities provided by CELT.

Please register even if you attend only one session. All sessions will be recorded and made available for those who cannot participate in the symposium synchronously (in real-time).
