The Office of Faculty Development is supporting the efforts of graduate teaching assistants (GTAs) by offering open office hours every Wednesday during the Spring 2014 semester from 11:00am - 12:30pm in the OFD (UCC 2029).

We will also be hosting GTA workshops every Wednesday during the Spring 2014 semester from 2:00-3:30 pm in UCC 3000 (clocktower room). These workshops will be chosen by attending GTAs.
