Comm B Training, Writing Across the Curriculum: If you are assigned to teach Introductory Biology 151 or 152 you will need to complete the Comm B training. This is a designation for writing intensive courses. More information about Comm B training, including the registration information, can be found here.

SPEAK Test: UW System policy requires non-native English speakers to demonstrate proficiency in spoken English before they are assigned classroom duties as teaching assistants. Your department will decide whether you, as an international student, need to take the SPEAK test and schedule it for you.

UW Delta Teaching Program is dedicated to integrating research, teaching, and learning.

Teaching and Learning Symposium is a great way for all those who are interested in building a career in teaching.
