Every year the Center for Teaching and Learning asks experienced TAs to apply to help train new TAs. The Center needs students in the sciences, social sciences, and humanities to lead new TAs in workshops such as:
- Grading in the Humanities and Qualitative Social Sciences
- Grading in the Sciences and Quantitative Social Sciences
- Leading Discussions in the Humanities and Qualitative Social Sciences
- Leading Discussions in Sciences and Quantitative Social Sciences
- Teaching Problem Solving Recitations
- Being an Effective Lab TA
- Leading Problem Solving Sessions in Engineering
Trainers will prepare to train other TAs by participating in several day-long workshops. Applicants should expect to be available for several days in May and must be available during the entire week of August 17 – August 21. They will receive a $1,500 stipend.
