Submission of this Lab TA application only entitles the applicant to consideration for a Lab TA position for General Physics in the upcoming semester. It does not guarantee actual placement in such a position. However, TA applicants that successfully submit all required materials, meet criteria for grades, and actually have the necessary time in their schedule, are generally assigned a solo or partnered teaching post. Selected applicants will either be registered for PHYS 391(Practicum in Teaching Physics) or allowed to serve as a campus volunteer if credit is not desired.

Once assigned, Physics Lab TAs are required to teach all scheduled lab sections and attend all weekly prep meetings. Lab quizzes will be given at the end of each lab section, graded, and returned during the next lab meeting. Student grad records will be kept accurately and confidentially, as directed. Other responsibilities may be assigned.

Physics Lab TAs are expected to conduct themselves in a reasonably professional manner: arriving at assigned times, punctually; conducting the lab safely; teaching the material properly; treating their students equitably, and: grading them fairly. If these guidelines are followed, both you and your students should have a great semester!
