TLL itself organizes or helps Schools and departments to organize workshops that introduce teaching assistants to teaching at MIT. Orientations are usually held at the beginning of the academic year, but arrangements can be made to hold workshops at the beginning of the spring semester as well.
There are courses for graduate and undergraduate students at MIT who are interested in learning more about teaching and learning, who are preparing for careers in academia, or who want to teach math or science in elementary or high school.
