The Conference for Graduate Teaching Assistants (TA conference) is a half-day event, free to UB graduate students and postdoctoral scholars. The TA conference is designed to help prepare graduate students for success in their instructional roles at UB and beyond. Through interactive presentations and discussions, participants will gain knowledge on effective teaching practices, learn tips and best practices from other TAs, network with peers, and be connected to instruction related services and resources.
