Activity1

ACTIVITY

  • The University of Guelph has some ethical dilemmas in its TA handbook—-an excellent resource

  • http://www.tss.uoguelph.ca/id/ta/tahb/tahindex.html

  • Each group will get one scenario—either from this site or one that I have encountered at the U of R.

  • Discuss your scenario. What would you do if you were in this situation?


Activity2

Activity

  • Have you ever been in, or can you think of, additional ethical dilemmas—please share some with your small group? Please appoint someone in your group to write out your dilemma—this will be added to the powerpoint to be posted to the TDC site. Please—no names or identifying information if this indeed is an actual event.


Activity3

ACTIVITY

  • ROLES you play as a TA

    • Go around your small group and describe all the different roles each of you has in your position as TA (e.g., lab instructor, co-op student supervisor, graduate student, teaching assistant, football coach, etc). Appoint someone to create a chart and check off on the chart the different roles that each person has.

    • We will share the information from each chart.

    • How do you balance these responsibilities?

    • How can CTL help you?
