The Department of Information Studies is looking for a number of Postgraduate Teaching Assistants for 2019- 20 for its undergraduate teaching. PGTAs will run computer practical classes and seminars each week in term-time, during which they will provide answers to questions relating to material presented in the week’s lecture.
The number of sessions to be held varies for each course and will be confirmed before teaching begins. PGTAs will also usually assist the course leaders in marking student assessments (full guidance will be provided).
Serving as a PGTA provides a valuable introduction to university teaching. All PGTAs will be required to attend the Arena One introductory Gateway Workshop and will also have the opportunity to work towards a nationally recognised teaching award.
