TA Training & Development Workshops


Each quarter the Department of Electrical Engineering Student Services hosts a lunch workshop series for all EE Teaching Assistants. The workshop series provides an opportunity for EE Teaching Assistants to come together and discuss their experiences and concerns as TAs, while additionally exploring topics that are central to their development and training as teaching assistants.

Lunch is provided at each of our workshops. If you believe you may need accommodations during the workshop series, please contact us at ta@ee.stanford.edu so that we may plan a way to meet your needs. We hope that you will join us.

CA Coaching

The CA Coaches support new CAs within specific courses, work with CAs to improve their teaching skills, provide a safe environment to advise CAs on teaching topics, and act as a resource for new EE CAs during their first quarter of teaching. The CA Coaching program provides structure for new less experienced CAs to receive support during their first quarter of teaching.


First-time CAs often encounter difficulty with various aspects of teaching, such as the administrative duties of running a class or labs, coordinating with fellow CAs and faculty, grading exams/lab reports, and delivering review sessions or lectures. They may also be less familiar with campus or departmental resources, such as CTL’s evaluations, how to use CCNet or other Stanford course services, and the lab and facilities resources of the Packard EE building. Finally, they may benefit from some formal pedagogical training, or from discussions of common problems with other CAs. Although new CAs are presently required to attend an EE department TA orientation and two pedagogical workshops per quarter, the CA Coaching program goes one step further and offers students the opportunity for one-on-one coaching.


Students who have been CAs for mezzanine graduate level classes and the EE 108A/B and EE 178A/B sequence classes are encouraged to apply. To apply or for more information, please contact  ta@ee.stanford.edu.


Thank you!
