The Teaching Assistantship Appointment Process involves many steps. The Academic Director, Teacher Education and the Associate Dean, Programs office are in the process of making decisions about continuing TA and TEPA positions for 2013/2014. As part of this process, some continuing teaching assistants will need to go onto the TA and TEPA Posting systems to find a job that interests them.

Next Step in the Process:

All continuing teaching assistants will be able to view their assignment for 2013/14 on June 3.  At that time you will also be able to view the DDAH form and asked to accept or decline the assignment below.

 

The ability to view your supervisions is currently turned off.  We are inputting the assignment information at this time.  On June 3, you will be able to view your assignment for 2013/14 and asked to accept or decline the assignment.

 

Continuing teaching assistants who need to go onto the TA and TEPA Posting systems will be notified by email during the week of April 29 and will be given instructions to view current job opportunities.  At that time, you will be asked to indicate which jobs interest you.  You may indicate multiple positions that interest you.  Instructors will review your information and will rank all those that are interested in their positions.  At the end of this step, you will be assigned a subsequent assignment for 2013/14.  Although our goal is to find the best possible match for you, we cannot guarantee that you will be matched with a particular job.

All continuing teaching assistants will be able to view their match below on June 3.
