Winter 2020-2021 GTA Positions

 

Courses below are posted on June 29, 2020 | Application Deadline: July 15, 2020

 

EPSE 308:  Human Development, Learning and Diversity

EPSE 311:  Cultivating Supportive School and Classroom Environments

PLEASE NOTE:  Despite the separate course names these two courses are combined and taught as ONE course (EPSE 308/311).  In other words, you are applying to a combined course in these applications.  It is not possible to TA for one course and not the other.

 

EPSE 308/311 Qualifications

Preference is given to candidates who have experience teaching in the areas of development, learning, and/or culture and who have a strong understanding of areas related to cultivating supportive classroom and school environments. Preferred candidates will have completed EPSE 606, University and College Teaching. Experience teaching or counselling in K-12 schools is also preferred.

Given that this course is online, candidates need to have a good understanding of how to use Canvas, or be willing to learn this on their own time. Successful candidates must also have the approval of their research supervisor (based on making satisfactory progress in the program).

 

Specific Course Information and Requirements:

EPSE 308-311 will be fully online and take place during regular class hours.  TAs must be on Canvas during class time and are responsible for monitoring student progress, facilitating discussions, respond to student questions, grade assignments and help with student groups as needed.  The course runs in a standard format, so TAs must adhere to the standardized syllabus and course content.  They are responsible to make themselves familiar with the intent and content of the course, however they will be highly supported during the term. It is expected that all instructors will attend a number of planning sessions and mentoring meetings that will take place in the summer and throughout the fall term. All graduate students in masters or doctoral programs meeting the general qualifications are welcome to apply for these sections.
