Office Hours, Instructor or Teaching Assistant (TA): How-to Guide

Your instructor or teaching assistant’s office hours are a time when you can ask questions about lectures, the syllabus, reading materials, or course assignments. The syllabus, Moodle, Blackboard, or Navigate are places where you may find office hour information. While many students report being nervous about their first visit to office hours, they usually walk away appreciating having had the time to talk to an instructor or TA. Most faculty are happy to connect with students to learn more about their interests or, even, their challenges in class.
