Student teaching assistants are not uncommon in computer science. However, their pedagogical training is often only superficial. This poster presents the Teaching Lab – a mature and fully developed training course for novice teachers (mostly undergraduate teaching assistants), its core principles, content and unique features as it evolved over five years. Our experience can be helpful to others intending to create or adjust a training program for novice teachers.
