Students enrolled in this course will work closely with a faculty member to provide assistance in teaching an undergraduate engineering course. Students are expected to devote twenty hours per week to one or more of the following activities: developing assignments, preparing and delivering material (e.g., a lecture, in-class activity, discussion) for one or more class hours, organizing and delivering tutorials or problem sessions, laboratory instruction, evaluating student responses, and grading. Performance will be monitored throughout the term by the supervising faculty member and/or laboratory instructor, and feedback will be provided on teaching effectiveness. Students interested in pursuing an academic career are strongly encouraged to enroll. Students enrolled in this class are expected to participate in at least one DCAL workshop for graduate student teaching assistants prior to the term during which they enroll. Example workshops are as follows: Future faculty teaching workshop series (five-part workshop offered twice annually), campus-wide TA orientation (fall only), Learning Community for Future Faculty, Mentoring Series.
