published: 20-Nov-2006 †† PDF (436kb) †† Job_Responsibilities_-_Graduate_Teaching_Assistantship_(for_posting).pdf

This form is used to describe the duties to be fulfilled during one (1) Graduate Teaching Assistantship (GTA). One full GTA comprises 130 hours so the total hours accounted for on this form must equal 130 for a full GTA.

Be advised that the Teaching Assistant is expected to proctor the final exam when assigned to courses that include a final exam. TAs must consequently be available during the university's final examination schedule (see "Academic and related dates" in the current academic calendar).

The form must be completed and signed. Questions can be directed to Graduate Studies.
