Department of Physiology and Biophysics – Teaching Assistant Positions

The Department is looking for up to 11 teaching assistants (TA) to support the instruction in PHYL 1002: Human Physiology II between January 6 and April 23, 2021. The descriptions of the positions are available below and all will be compensated at the regular CUPE rate.

**Please note that, in accordance with Dal policy in response to the covid-19 outbreak, this course will run entirely online, so there will be no requirements for face-to-face interactions or on-campus visits.**

1- Tutorial TAs (up to 10 positions)

Each TA will lead a section (around 50 students) throughout the course. The responsibilities of TAs include:

– Leading a weekly online tutorial (1 h) for their section. Each tutorial will review important physiological concepts from the previous week. There are 9 tutorials scheduled for this semester.

– Participating in TA training provided by the course instructors.

– Marking laboratory assignments for their section (5 labs during the semester) on Brightspace. Marking labs involve 2 steps: 1) verification of completeness of PDF submission — this is an individual work, so TAs will grade around 50 PDFs per labs; 2) marking of written answers — this is a group submission (students will work in groups of 3-4), so the number of written questions to mark will be around 10 questions per lab.

– Organizing, and regularly monitoring and answering the Brightspace discussion board specific to your section. It is expected that TAs check their discussion board at least once a day on business days and respond to inquiries within 24 hours, whenever possible.

– Communicating regularly with course instructors.

Each tutorial section will be compensated as a 45 h TA position. Candidates can apply to lead one or two sections (compensated as a 90 h TA position), depending on their availability and interest.

2-Communication TA (1 position)

This position is for 65h/semester. This TA will lead one section (see description above). In addition, this individual will be responsible for monitoring the course-specific email account and answer students’ questions. As such, this person will become the first point of contact for students, will answer administrative and content-based questions, and direct students to appropriate resources when necessary.

The successful applicants:

– exhibit leadership and initiative to become a role model and reliable resource for the students they work with.

– possess superior communicating skills that allow them to provide engaging and dynamic tutorials.

– are well-organized, reliable, ethical, and able to comply with Dalhousie’s academic integrity policy to mark assignments accurately and fairly.

– are interested in evidence-based pedagogical practices and are willing to be trained and learn.

– understand physiological core concepts and are able to communicate this knowledge appropriately for the audience (i.e. first-year students).

TA experience for PHYL 1001 in the Fall 2020 semester is a strong asset. Other prior teaching or TAing experience will also be considered. Having a graduate degree in a related physiology area or currently being enrolled as a graduate student in physiology is an asset.

If interested in these positions, please send your C.V. on or before November 13 to Dr. Cindy Penney (cindy.penney@dal.ca) and Dr. Marie-Soleil Beaudoin (marie-soleil.beaudoin@dal.ca) and indicate which position(s) you are most interested in as well as how many sections (1 or 2) you would want to be in charge of.
