GTA Fellows Program
The GTA Fellows Program at the Biggio Center is currently in its second year. A small group of doctoral and masters students from various departments on Auburn’s campus are selected each year to represent Auburn’s many GTA’s on campus that work with Auburn undergraduate students on a daily basis. The mission of the GTA Fellows Program is to train and prepare graduate students to become graduate teaching instructors.
GTA fellows meet multiple times throughout the semester at professional development seminars, teaching workshops, and brainstorming sessions in order to hone cross-discipline teaching methods that engage students in the classroom and lab. Additionally, GTA fellows maintain a GTA survival guide wiki online for current Auburn GTA’s to use as a resource throughout their time here. The guide includes teaching tips and methodologies, including active learning strategies, logistical information for future GTA’s about Auburn University, and departmental specific information.
GTA fellow sare also responsible for hosting breakout sessions at the fall and spring GTA orientations. Some of the sessions include how to survive your first week of teaching at Auburn, how to teach small and large class sections, and how to manage lab sections.
