Graduate Student Teaching Opportunity: MCB 181L

Emily Dykstra, Director of the Introductoy Biology Lab, is starting to select instructors for the 181 Lab course this fall. She is seeking candidates who bring a combination of teaching insight, enthusiasm, and content knowledge to the teaching of the molecular biology semester of Introductory Biology. To succeed, people will need to lead labs focused on thinking/problem-solving rather than technical training. These are challenging positions; students are compensated for 20 hrs/week (o.5 FTE) and should expect that the position will require the full time commitment. All new TAs should expect to learn a fair amount of novel content and course management strategies. 

 

The application for the position can be found here:

https://forms.gle/4nXW4FghVast5zMF6

 

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis and I hope to begin offering positions in mid June; offers to returners may be made sooner.

 

Factors in decision making:

--previous success as 181L GTA

--teaching methods coursework

--letter from faculty member who has seen student teach

--content expertise (conceptual, not technical)

 

For any questions or concerns, Dr Dykstra contact information I below:
