The physics department is seeking students who are interested in being Instructional Assistants for fall, 2015.
Instructional Assistants contribute to the teaching mission of the department by helping teach laboratory classes. They work closely with faculty supervisors who assist them in preparing to teach. Preparation sessions typically last 30 - 90 minutes, depending on the course. During preparation, students will discuss the physics concepts that students will need to understand the experiment they will be doing, along with the equipment that will be used to collect data, and the data analysis the students will be asked to complete.
Qualifications for successful instructional assistants include physics content knowledge at the appropriate level, usually obtained by completion of one or more physics courses at Texas State. Prior experience as an instructional assistant or in other teaching related positions will also be considered. If you have questions, please feel free to contact Dr. David Donnelly, Associate Chair.
Interested indivduals should complete the application at the link below. Decisions regarding appointments will be made in late August.
