Graduate Student Orientation to ICS - 2018-2019: Being a TA


Being a TA

As a Teaching Assistant, we ask that you serve as a conduit between the teaching faculty and the class.  Please make sure that the Liaison Librarian receives copies of the course syllabus and all assignments, so that it can be conveyed to colleagues who serve in all reference capacities.  Librarians are charged to promote "Information Literacy" and this includes in-class bibliographic instruction, working with students individually or in groups, meeting with discussion or quiz sections, preparing course handouts of resources and other appropriate information.  Making sure that all items are placed on Library Reserves prior to when needed is another task that requires oversight by the TAs.
