Workshop for New Teaching Assistants

The University of Montana Graduate School will not host an in-person Workshop for New Teaching Assistants (TAs) this year.  Rather, they have opted to post the recording from last year's session on their website.  All new TAs should have received an invitation from the Grad School with a link to register for this.
