Fall 2011 Graduate Teaching Assistant Positions

Fall 2011 Undergraduate Teaching Assistant Positions (TA)

Available for Qualifying MID/MAID Students


The primary responsibilities of the TA are related to specific undergraduate course content, and will be determined by the Faculty member teaching the course. Generally the TA will assist in the classroom, participate in group and individual critiques, and provide assistance to students outside of class. Responsibilities may also include class-related research, preparation of presentation materials, and grading assistance. Masters students will find the TA positions invaluable in developing their own pedagogy and teaching philosophy for Interior Design courses. We encourage applicants to be specific about areas of interest in teaching.
