Teaching Assistant positions for 2023-2024 academic year

The Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures requires a Teaching Assistantship for the SPAN 111/3.0 Beginning Spanish I offered through Arts and Science (ASO) Spring/Summer Term 2023.

The below estimations are based on historical trend enrollments in the course(s), however, ASO will determine actual contract hours as well as the final number of TA’s needed closer to the start of term. ASO will work with instructors and TAs to fill out the TA forms and process payments. ASO will also organize training sessions for TAs and the instructors supporting students in the online environment.
