Students participate in a teaching assistantship under the supervision of an instructor.  They explore teaching strategies for implementing concrete educational goals, with an emphasis on the pedagogies of service-learning and participatory education.  Focusing on issues of social justice and environmental sustainability, teaching assistants learn how to encourage higher levels of critical thinking, creativity, synthesis of ideas and analysis among students. Pre-requisite: graduation from the INVST Program (if you would like to TA for INVS 3931, 4931, 3932 or 4932) or successful completion of the Public Achievement course, INVS 2919 (if you would like to TA for INVS 2919). PLEASE NOTE that it is the student's responsibility to register in this course and then meet with the instructor on a bi-weekly basis, following a Learning Outcomes Contract that they uniquely co-create with the instructor. It is not the instructor's responsibility to reach out to the TA; it is the would-be TA's responsibility to reach out to our staff, for this particular course.
