The aim of this project is to identify areas of needed support and build capacity around Teaching Assistant (TA) wellness in departments across UBC. Professional development programs for university-level teaching assistants often don’t included formal lessons on maintaining TA wellness. This gap in training places university level teaching assistants at risk of experiencing more stress and inappropriately addressing teaching related experiences that have a negative impact on their wellness.
