Attendance PolicyALL TATP WORKSHOPS (including microteaching sessions)
Effective January 1, 2013
LATE ARRIVALS: participants who arrive more than 20 minutes late will not be admitted to the session under any circumstances.
LEAVING EARLY: participants who must leave a workshop early for legitimate reasons (i.e. to get to a class) are asked to inform both the workshop presenter and the TATP staff member present that they are leaving the session early. ‘Leaving early’ is understood to mean leaving up to 20 minutes before the end of a workshop. Leaving more than 20 minutes early will cause forfeiture of workshop credit in the certificate program.
CANCELLATIONS for TATP WORKSHOPS: If you are unable to attend your workshop, please notify email@example.com in case there is a waiting list for the workshop.
CANCELLATIONS for MICROTEACHING SESSIONS (effective January 2013):
Attendance in Microteaching is to be taken extremely seriously. Due to high demand, TATP is unable to accommodate all interested participants and each micro-teaching session carries a full waiting list. Therefore, due to inconsideration and abuse of registration and attendance policies, the following attendance policy will now be in effect:
- Participants may only register for one Microteaching I and one Microteaching II session per term. Multiple registrations will be removed from the system.
- Attendance and preparation are expected and last-minute cancellations will not be tolerated. Failure to withdraw three business days prior to a workshop will result in an inability to register in Microteaching for six months. We recommend you only register for Microteaching when you are sure you will have the time in your schedule to adequately prepare.
- If you must cancel, please do so three (3) business days prior to the workshop to allow TATP staff to offer the space to another student.
Removal from eligibility for registration of micro-teaching may cause serious disruption in your ability to complete the AUTP certificate. Individuals who are not allowed to register for micro-teaching may only request one in-class teaching observation. Completion may then require the writing of a scholarly paper to fulfill the practicum component of the certificate.
