The International Teaching Assistant Program offered by Global Launch provides testing services, teacher training and language support services. International TA candidates can sign up for a non-credit, semester-long course that addresses language improvement, teaching skills and cross-cultural training. During the semester, students will prepare at least four videotaped micro-teaching presentations for evaluation by the instructor. A panel of language and pedagogical experts evaluate a final videotaped presentation. Full certification by the panel is equivalent to a score of 55 on the SPEAK test and a rating of certified with qualifications is equivalent to a score of 50.
Classes start Monday, August 24, 2015. Encourage your international TAs to apply online
