Productive workplace with a new approach to lecturing.
Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – Wendt Library, Madison, WI – March 30, 2013
A typical day involved making sure that in-class exercises were properly posted at the class website before class started. The class period was 2 hours long and was more of a problem-solving session instead of a straight lecture. The students were to watch short video lectures and turn in exercises at the end of the class period, which I would then grade. I also held office hours in the late afternoon. The hardest part of the job was to generate in-class exercises that were both instructive and interesting. Overall, I really enjoyed the job, there were days that had very long hours, but the manager was phenomenal. I really enjoyed working with others, helping the students really understand the material, and watching them excel at the subject I was helping them learn.
great management, flexible hours.
occasional long hours.
