Subject: JOB: BSCI UTAs for Fall 2019

Description:
Biological Sciences Undergraduate Teaching Assistant Fellows Program Fall
2019

The Biological Sciences Program, within the College of Computer, Mathematical
and Natural Sciences, will employ Undergraduate Teaching Assistants (UTAs)
Fall 2019 in a program designed to develop teaching and communication skills,
organization ability, knowledge, and leadership. Each UTA will be supervised
by the lab or discussion coordinator for the course they are assigned to, and
will be required to perform the duties typically expected of a teaching
assistant.

UTA duties will include:
-Attend weekly prep meetings as scheduled by the lab or discussion supervisor
(see below for times)
-Attend lectures.
-Teach one lab or discussion section per week (except for BSCI207, see below)
-Adequately prepare for teaching the lab or discussion
-Grade papers & assignments as assigned by the lab or discussion supervisor,
or the faculty instructor
-Hold office hours as directed by the lab or discussion supervisor
-Help to proctor lecture exams as needed
-Be available one week prior to the beginning of classes for scheduled TA
meetings
-UTA’s who have not previously done so will register for and attend a
1-credit weekly seminar course on teaching skills and issues, BSCI279P, which
meets on Wednesday 2-3pm (prep UTAs are exempt from this requirement).

New UTAs teaching labs must attend a lab safety training session prior to or
during the first week of classes. This work will require 10 - 15 hours per
week, depending on the course requirements.  The stipend is $1500.00 for the
semester, paid in an hourly wage.  Undergraduate students will be hired for
only one UTA position in any given semester, but will be allowed to apply for
a position in a later semester, assuming their performance is satisfactory.

Interested students fill out the application found here:

UTA applications are due April 15th, 2019.

Some UTA positions will be awarded before May 15th 2019.  However, most
positions will be awarded between May15th and June 15th. Hiring will continue
throughout the summer until all positions are filled.

Minimum application requirements:
-Second year student

above)
-Have taken the course they wish to TA at UMCP and earned a grade of B or
higher.
-Students with AP credit for a course will have completed the next higher
level course with a grade of B or higher
-For the non-majors courses a UTA will have earned a grade of B or higher in
either BSCI160 or BSCI170, taken at UMCP.
-Sufficient time free for the UTA position
-At least one 3-hour block of time available to teach a 2 or 3 hour lab or
discussion
-Time free to attend lectures for course

course are listed below.   UTA positions will be filled based on staffing
needs and applicant backgrounds and preferences.
