Most graduate departments/programs engage several graduate students each year to assist in undergraduate teaching, tutorial work, and laboratory demonstrating, as Teaching Assistants (TAs).
At Queen’s University, TAs are unionized members of the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC). The current collective agreement will expire on April 30, 2013.
For more details, the agreement will be posted in the coming days to the HR website.
The Centre for Teaching and Learning offers workshops, programs and services for TAs at Queen's. Complete details may be found on the website: http://www.queensu.ca/ctl/
