About Graduate Teaching Assistantships
This is a Graduate Teaching Assistantship (GTA), which means that you will be required to do some teaching as part of your training and will facilitate student participation in their learning through tutorials, seminars and workshops geared towards effective development of knowledge and the application of principles set out in lectures and module materials. GTAs allow research students to fund their PhD through part-time teaching work with the University.
A Graduate Teaching Assistant is responsible to the Head of School and is expected to undertake teaching or other duties within the School - not normally exceeding 8-10 contact hours per week - while undertaking research leading to a PhD. Training is provided to help Graduate Teaching Assistants develop their teaching related skills and enhance their professional competencies. Job Summary
