Call for volunteers: Graduate student focus group on interculturality and teaching

Are you a graduate student interested in shaping future programming for the teaching community at the University of Toronto?  

The Teaching Assistants’ Training Program (TATP) and the Centre for International Experience (CIE) are looking for graduate student volunteers for an upcoming focus group on interculturality and teaching. This is a great leadership and service opportunity to help support the teaching community at U of T! Participants will receive an Amazon gift card for their time.

Eligibility: We are looking for both domestic AND international students who have worked as teaching assistants (TAs) and/or course instructors (CIs) at the University of Toronto.  

Details: This 90-minute structured discussion will focus on your beliefs, experiences, and perceptions of U of T’s learning and teaching environments, specifically as it relates to diversity and interculturality. It will be facilitated by two staff members from the University of Toronto. In appreciation of your time, you will receive a $25 gift card. Participation in these focus groups is voluntary and you may refuse to participate in parts of the group conversation or may withdraw from the group chat at any time during the conversation without penalty. The information will be anonymized and used in aggregate to inform future programming.  

Location: Conversations will take place virtually over Zoom.   

Deadline: Please complete the registration form by Tuesday, May 9th, 2023. A confirmation to participate in a group conversation will be emailed directly to you by Friday, May 12th.  Only those directly contacted will be invited to participate.  

Survey: If you’re unable to join the conversation in May, we’d still love to hear from you. Please consider completing this brief survey to support our program development.
