Review, Reflect, Renew. At the University of Calgary there is a visionary focus on and institutional commitment to teaching and learning. The restructured educational development team embraced the opportunity to review, reflect and renew the current Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA) development program. With the intent to develop and deliver an exemplary evidence-based program, an Action Research approach was utilized. The team conducted a needs assessment, analyzed the existing GTA curriculum, reviewed the literature and consulted with stakeholders to determine a comprehensive GTA development plan, including outcomes, implementation, evaluation and future programs.

In this interactive presentation the development process will be outlined, preliminary findings will be discussed and the research project will be explored. Resources and handouts will be shared.
