We provide various types of support for our classes, including undergraduate Course Assistants (CA), Educational Tech Assistants (ETA), Undergraduate Teaching Assistants (UTA), and Learning Assistants (LA). These programs provide opportunities for undergrads to assist their peers as they pursue the study of computer science.
Learning Assistant & Undergraduate TA Information:
A limited number of Undergraduate Teaching Assistant and Learning Assistant positions are available for a small number of courses. These positions require students to take a 1-credit UTA or LA course (students are placed in the course when hired for the position). This position does include direct classroom instructional duties; therefore, applicants for these positions may be subject to additional screening. Please contact Rachel Cox if interested in learning more.
Learning Assistant (link to https://learningassistantalliance.org/) positions are available for CSCI 1200 and CSCI 1300. Learning Assistant applications typically open ~1 month into the semester and close ~3 weeks after they open. Note that these deadlines are typically before the CA application deadlines.
Undergraduate Teaching Assistant positions are currently only available for CSCI 2824. To apply to be an Undergraduate Teaching Assistant, please send a statement of interest and a description of your prior formal pedagogical training to Rachel Cox. Undergraduate Teaching Assistants must have had Learning Assistant pedagogical training or equivalent. These positions involve greater direct classroom instructional duties and responsibility for pedagogical materials and plans. Undergraduate Teaching Assistant positions are filled on a rolling basis.
