IAT 100: New Media Images - Is one of the largest courses taught in the first year at the School of Interactive Art and Technology. To manage the large nubmer of students requires multiple teaching assistants who are each responsible for their own set of 25 student labs.

The labs serve as multi-purpose education sessions and typically include program and skill tutorials, assignment critique and student work time. Teaching Assistant's are typically responsible for their own labs and must engage with students and teach with minimal supervision

In order to maintain consistency between each TA's lab and ease the burden for new TA's this handbook was created as a more detailed expansion of traditional lab outlines and lesson plans.
