The purpose of the LTO’s TA/GA Awards Program is to recognize, promote, and reward the contributions that teaching and graduate assistants (TA/GAs) make to enhance the quality of undergraduate student learning experiences at Ryerson. The TA/GA Awards centre on the development of self-directedness in the TA/GA role by emphasizing three criteria: community building, employee relations, and the student experience.
Nominees must have worked as a teaching assistant or graduate teaching assistant (TA or GA) at Ryerson over the 2016/2017 academic year. Note: Research Assistants (RAs) are not eligible. A person can receive this award only once throughout his/her time at Ryerson. Nominees must not have any affiliation with the Awards Committee that may constitute a conflict of interest. Candidates can be nominated or they may self-nominate.
The nomination package must include the following:
The nomination package must be received by 4pm on January 30th 2017 (for fall term contracts) or May 15th 2017 (for winter term or full-year contracts). The nomination package must be delivered to Curtis Maloley at the Learning & Teaching Office (KHW 373). Please note that any incomplete or late applications will not be considered for this award.
