This orientation is designed to help meet the needs of graduate students teaching for the first time at the University of Missouri. GATO is held once a year in August, the week prior to the start of the fall semester. However, graduate students can access the most recent recordings and materials year-round by registering and viewing online.
Students should register in advance for the August orientation. Registration for GATO August 2021 is not yet available.
All Teaching Assistants (TAs) and Graduate Instructors (GIs) who have not taught at the University of Missouri previously are strongly encouraged to attend this seminar. Experienced Teaching Assistants and Graduate Instructors at the University of Missouri are also welcome at the orientation.
Thursday, August 2oth, 9:30 am to Friday, August 21, 2020, 12:00 pm
Location: Virtual (registrants will be sent link 48 hours in advance of first session)
We are excited to bring you a combination of live and prerecorded content for GATO 2020. Unlike previous years, we are holding GATO over two days to allow for more flexibility in students’ schedules, as well as to limit the amount of back-to-back hours required to sit at your computer. Participants should expect to attend live sessions 9:30 am-12:30 pm on August 20th and 9:00 am-12:00 pm on August 21st. In the afternoons, participants will be able to select from a variety of prerecorded videos and web resources to view at their own pace.
