Fall 2013 Graduate School Teaching Seminar Assistantships: Now Accepting Applications
The Dean of the Graduate School is offering 2/9th assistantships to award-winning or departmentally recognized teaching assistants who help develop and teach sections of GRSC 7770 in the colleges or departments. The purpose of the one semester-long teaching assistantship is to encourage the discipline-based development of a new or relatively new two- or three-credit-hour GRSC 7770 seminar in a department. The assistantship is not intended to provide a GRSC 7770 alternative to an already existing departmental class on pedagogy.
Graduate School Teaching Seminar Assistantship applications will be considered on the following criteria:
- The TA applicant must have been a nominee of the Graduate School Excellence in Teaching Award, a winner of the Outstanding Teaching Assistant Award, or have recieved discipline-based teaching recognition.
- The TA applicant must have participated in the Future Faculty Program or be able to document extensive teaching and leadership experience such as Lead TA, Preceptor, or Lab Coordinator.
- The TA applicant must be willing to work with the staff in The Center for Teaching and Learning to identify teaching seminar resources and submit a departmentally based GRSC 7770 syllabus before the beginning of fall semester.
Applications must have departmental commitment, including a:
- Faculty member as teacher of record for GRSC 7770 who will work closely with the TA in the development of the seminar.
- Department chair endorsement and a departmental requirement that all new TAs and LAs in the department take the seminar Fall Semester 2013.
- Departmental support of 1/9th so the TA can receive the reduced matriculation fee for the semester. The GRSC 2/9th Assistantship is for UoneU semester only for a total of approximately $4,480.50 dispensed in five payments of $896.10.
