Seminar for International Teaching Assistants

As part of our commitment to excellence in teaching, Florida Atlantic University (FAU) has established a minimum level of English language and teaching proficiency which all international graduate students must demonstrate to work as graduate teaching assistants. In order to assure that these standards are upheld, the Graduate College, in conjunction with the Department of Teaching and Learning, has established the Seminar for International Teaching Assistants (SITA).

SITA is a multi-purpose program designed to prepare international graduate students to teach undergraduate students at FAU. Such preparation includes developing an understanding of the teaching role in American university classrooms, providing training in English pronunciation and intonation, practicing classroom communication skills and instructional strategies, and assisting students during the first semester of teaching at FAU.

Registration for SITA for Spring 2014 is now open. To register students, please click here. For questions regarding SITA, please contact Angela Lints at
