Specific Course Information and Requirements
EPSE 308 in a lecture/seminar format where TAs must attend the lectures and then are responsible to run activities in smaller groups in their seminar sections. In these seminars TAs 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.
