Instructional Support

Teaching Assistant Training Program
The OID TA Training Program assists TAs at UCLA to improve their teaching and advance their professional development.

Collegium of University Teaching Fellows
The Collegium of University Teaching Fellows (CUTF) is an innovative program that creates unique learning opportunities for both graduate teaching fellows and undergraduate students on campus. Through the program, some of UCLA's very best advanced graduate students have the opportunity to develop and teach a lower division seminar in their field of specialization on a one-time only basis.

Test of Oral Proficiency
The TOP is designed to test the oral English ability of international students to conduct discussion sections, labs, and office hours and to interact in English with undergraduate students in the course of normal TA duties. It is not designed to test teaching skills or knowledge of subject matter. All international students who plan to work as teaching assistants at UCLA must pass the TOP before working as TAs in any department at UCLA, and no alternatives to TOP are accepted.
