SL-TA Request Survey

CUPS S-L TAs provide approximately 5 hours per week of assistance to faculty teaching SL classes. S-L TAs can earn work-study, academic credit, or a stipend from the CUPS Office (limited availability).   We are usually able to provide several possible matches for each faculty member, but balance stipends across Schools/Colleges to ensure parity. 

S-L TAs receive training and ongoing professional development in the following areas:

  •      SL pedagogy & best practices
  •      cross-cultural competency and effective communication
  •      critical reflection
  •      rubrics & assessment of reflection
  •      project management tools

Most faculty use S-L TAs to facilitate, design and/or grade critical reflection; other TA responsibilities can include introducing SL, managing the SL project, and working with community partners. 

Please complete this survey to request a S-L TA.  Please feel free to call Tom Wilson, Program Coordinator for CUPS, if you have any questions or would like to discuss how you might work with a TA:, 6-3853.
