School of Education is looking for TA’s for the following course –

Course: Edu 065A – Foundations for University Success: Introduction to the University System – Introduction to resources supporting first year students’ academic success at UCD and transition to a Tier 1 Research University.

There are multiple sections that meet on Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday from 10-11, 11-12, 1-2 and 2-3

These classes are designed specifically for incoming freshman and transfer international students.

TA’s responsibilities will include:

  • Preparing and running two class sections twice a week (4 hours)
  • Attending required weekly TA meeting (12-1 Tuesday or Wednesday TBD) (1 hour)
  • Holding two office/library hours per week TBD (2 hours)

Preferred background:  Preference will be given to students who have a degree in TESOL/TESL, Education or other related teaching field. International travel/teaching experience such as study abroad or peace corps and/or second language is a plus.

Hiring for Fall Quarter only. This program runs all three quarters, but traditionally Fall is the largest and I need twice as many TA’s. If enrollment stays high there is a possibility of work in additional quarters.

Hiring for 25% TAs – possibility of higher percentage if more sections are needed

Applications open until filled; early application is recommended. International students must include proof of language proficiency requirement.
