Information for ITAs

Who is an ITA?

An international teaching assistant is a student from any country other than the United States who is here, at SIUC, to study in graduate school and has received an assistantship to teach in their department. A student from Canada is considered an ITA, as is a student from Nepal or Cameroon. The designation is a matter of immigration status, not native language.

Additional Teaching Resources

The University of California Berkley has a fantastic webpage dedicated to providing support to ITAs called the Berkley Compendium of Suggestions for Teaching with Excellence.

The Derek Bok Center at Harvard University has some information for TAs, (called Teaching Fellows).
