USTA Orientations 2017-18

More than 100 US teaching assistants (USTAs) in Austria participated in two orientations held in Hollabrunn and Saalbach Hinterglemm by the Pädagogische Hochschulen of Lower Austria and Salzburg respectively and the Austrian Federal Ministry for Education (BMB), in conjunction with the respective provincial Boards of Education (Landesschulräte). Over the course of 5 days, TAs participated in teaching workshops, learned about the Austrian educational system, the duties of a teaching assistant, and finer points of lesson planning--with some singing, dancing and hiking thrown in for good measure!
