A new academic year had begun. We the newly recruited graduate teaching assistants (GTAs) were stuggling to cope with the expectations put on us by the course lecturers (who we tutor for) on the one hand and the students on the other. Amidst all of this, the recently organised GTA workshop at the University of Exeter came as a fruitful solution. Not only did it help sooth our apprehensions and answer our queries, but the workshop also provided ample guidance on what is expected of us GTAs.
