The GTA Workshop serves as basic training for prospective graduate teaching assistants (GTAs) at Missouri S&T. All GTAs must pass the workshop before teaching as a GTA. The workshop is held once per fall and spring semester. All non-native speakers of English must pass the SPEAK Test, a verbal exam that measures proficiency in spoken English, prior to enrolling in the workshop.
Our mission is to ensure that the Missouri S&T campus is in compliance with the Missouri Revised Statutes. The goal of the Workshop is to improve undergraduate education at Missouri S&T by enabling teaching assistants to combine their technical expertise with improved communication skills. Staff and faculty members from across campus discuss topics such as intercultural communication, collaborative learning, electronic support, and strong interpersonal communication at the workshop.
