Teaching Assistant Project (TAP)

The Teaching Assistant Project (TAP) is designed to promote excellence in undergraduate and graduate education at Rutgers-New Brunswick through the professional development of teaching assistants. The fundamental components of this project are an orientation for all new TAs, sponsorship of Introduction to College Teaching I and II, presentation of certificate programs and special issues seminars throughout the year, discipline-specific training within each program, and written, web-based materials designed for TAs. A dedicated telephone line, the TA HelpLine (932-11TA), provides daily assistance to TAs who have questions about teaching. The TA Project's website,, also provides extensive information for TAs about teaching at Rutgers. Videotaping is available for TAs who wish to have a class recorded so they may review and improve their teaching performance. TAP recognizes the dual role of TAs in the university and seeks to assist them in teaching on the college level while balancing their responsibilities as graduate students. Questions about TAP should be directed to the Office of the Dean, Graduate School–New Brunswick at 732-932-7747.
