Summary of Program
The International Teaching Assistant (ITA) Program is
available for international graduate students who have received
graduate teaching assistantships at Central Michigan University. This intensive
one-week course introduces ITAs to higher education in the United States. The
course provides in-depth discussion about U.S. classroom expectations and
culture, including practice using English language used specifically in teaching and within the disciplines. There are also Q&A panel sessions
with current and former ITAs from multiple departments around campus.
Throughout the course, ITAs will practice teaching through
microteaching lessons, which provide an opportunity to implement best teaching
practices, practice the teaching strategies, and ITAs will use
classroom-specific language that you have learned throughout the course.
