Fellows to lead development of graduate and teaching assistants

The latest cohort of Graduate Teaching and Learning Fellows, Mahsa Jalali and Ailin Barzegar in the Faculty of Engineering, will facilitate professional development opportunities and mentorship for graduate and teaching assistants.

The program, supported by individual faculties and the Centre for Teaching and Learning, aims to improve the pedagogical knowledge, skills, abilities of GAs and TAs, as well as the student experience overall.

“The fellowship program has proven to be a valuable way to encourage professional development training for our valuable GAs and TAs through a more informal and relaxed peer-to-peer format,” says dean of engineering Bill Van Heyst. “I’m excited to have both Mahsa and Ailin as our fellows for the 2023-24 academic year and can’t wait to see what they will accomplish.”
