Teaching Program (TATTO)

The Teaching Assistant Training and Teaching Opportunity program, or TATTO, ensures that each student’s education as a scholar is balanced with thoughtful and thorough preparation in the art of teaching. But the training doesn't stop there. 

The values and practices that students learn and nurture as they become teachers have importance beyond the classroom. Establishing relationships, creating a learning community, constructively managing conflict, communicating with impact, measuring success, prioritizing and finding balance in your work – these are skills that students take with them throughout their lives, no matter where their career pathways lead them.

Keep the Conversation Going

We also recommend that student participate in TATTO Extension Sessions. These sessions extend and expand TATTO conversations and are a unique and beneficial way for students to gain more insight into best practices, new technologies and methodologies.
