The workshop is held one week prior to the start of Fall classes. All workshop participants are automatically registered for the Oral Proficiency Test (OPT) and take the test during the workshop.

The workshop is designed to help international graduate teaching assistants prepare for their classes and labs and includes:
A series of introductory lectures and presentations on what the new international teaching assistant can expect and prepare for in the American classroom or lab.
Small group sessions in which participants meet with experienced international graduate assistants who share the cultural, language, and teaching experiences they have encountered at an American university.
A round table session in which Wright State students talk about their experiences with international teaching assistants in the classroom and lab.
A videotaping session in which participants present a micro teaching assignment and then have it critiqued by ESL faculty.
