Dear PhD students,
If you are supported by our department, you are expected to teach a course as an instructor in each academic year. In Fall 2020, the courses in GSU will be taught in a blended manner, for which more details of academic plan can be found at https://cetl.gsu.edu/resources/resources-for-remote-teaching-and-learning/fall-plan-keep-teaching/.
Please fill in the 'Teaching Preference Form for Instructors' in OGMS (http://grid.cs.gsu.edu/~ogms/) by June 21, 2020. The dropdown list includes all the courses that need to be taught by GTAs. Please select at least 1 course from each level (1***, 2***, 3***, 4***) and provide totally 5 preferred courses.
Your support will be greatly appreciated by our department and you will have higher priority for future GTA assignments. For the courses with no volunteers, we have to assign based on your teaching workload history. If you are asked to teach more than once in a fiscal year, you will be paid extra stipend. The assignments are mandatory and going back to home country is not an acceptable excuse.
Such teaching experiences are very beneficial to your future job hunting, especially for the ones who would like to work in academia. Usually, candidates with such teaching experiences get more interview opportunities.
