Question Tags: 

Is it free for students to participate?

Yes, it’s free for students to participate, and the only materials necessary are those you will already have for the course.

Question Tags: 

What is expected of me as an MTAC participant?

The MTAC model works best when each member is prepared to participate actively in every meeting, every week. As such, if you accept a place in an MTAC group, you are committing to attending one 90-minute coaching session every week during the fall semester. If you miss more than two MTAC meetings, you will be asked to leave the program, so that another student can take your place.

Question Tags: 

When and where do MTAC groups meet?

The specific details are still being worked out, but MTAC groups will be offered at a variety of times throughout the week, including morning, afternoon, and evening sessions. All meetings will take place on the Morningside campus.
