Teaching at the University of Virginia: A Handbook for Faculty and Teaching Assistants

handbookcoverThrough Teaching at the University of Virginia: A Handbook for Faculty and Teaching Assistants, accomplished U.Va. professors and TAs share with you, both faculty members and graduate student teaching assistants, some of what they’ve learned from others and from their own fruitful—and less than fruitful—experiences. We have intermingled philosophy and hands-on advice and have kept our suggestions fairly general, remembering that they will be read by an audience as diverse as engineers, artists, physicists, historians, and psychologists, all with different needs, personalities, student populations, and goals. You should find useful ideas, whether you have taught for years or never before. Although the primary focus is on undergraduate teaching, many Handbook recommendations apply to teaching graduate students as well.

The 3rd Edition Handbook can be viewed and downloaded as a PDF.
