Preferences for TA Assignment 2010-11

INSTRUCTIONS: Please rank at least 2/3 of the courses offered each term. (If you are not qualified for that many courses, please use the comment area to explain.) If you have not yet TA'd for PSYC 1001, please include all sections of it in your rankings. If you are due to TA for a "hard" course, your ranked courses should include all of the 4 pt. courses for which you are qualified to TA.
For each course you rank, use the pull-down menu to indicate your preference. Assign a rank of 1 to your first choice courses, 2 to your second, and so on._ For instance, "1_1610x" means your top choice is 1610, and "2_1420y" means 1420 is your second choice. NOTE: The form includes only 6 ranks, so you will need to re-use some ranks to inducate courses for which you would be equally happy to TA.

*: "Hard" courses include 4 pt courses and all courses involving lab or discussion sections.

Extra Comp TAships work well in lab sections, but may also be approved for a lecture course. Note that you must have the approval of your research advisor and the DGS for one of these assignments.

Grad TAships: Ideally, TA positions in the "Grad" column will be filled by graduate students. However, since there are more TAs needed than we have graduate students, some of these may need to be filled by undergraduate or postbac TAs. New grad students will not be assigned to lead lab or discussion sections unless they have prior TA or teaching experience.

Undergrad TAships: The number of positions in this column will depend on need and on availability of suitable undergraduates or postbacs. Need, in turn, will be determined by course enrollment and availability of graduate TAs.
