International graduate students (on student visas, landed, or permanent residents) who are new to teaching in Canada are invited to spend this half-day with colleagues from the Western teaching and learning community. We present a series of workshops and discussions including the following:

  • Teaching in the Canadian classroom
  • Culture-shock - how to find support for those critical first few weeks in a new place
  • Cross-cultural balance - how to honour your home culture while enjoying things about a new culture
  • Finding a school-community at Western
  • Resources that support international TAs at Western
