The handbook includes information on human resources, what makes a good teaching assistant, preparing to teach, as well as tips regarding the first day of teaching. Other topic areas covered are: active learning strategies that can be used in lectures, seminars and labs; information on assessments, grading and providing feedback; classroom management strategies; ethical practice principles; and academic integrity.
