A great place to learn and teach!

Teaching Assistant (Current Employee)
College Park, MD

I have been working at University of Maryland part-time for more than a year

ProsThere are some very engaging professors who love both their subject areas as well as adapting to the new kinds of students and technological implementations in the classroom and lecture environments.

ConsThe structure of some departments is outdated; younger professors and department heads are working, however, on updating curriculums in a way that better coincide with what society expects.

Advice to Senior ManagementFind an alternative to the current student evaluation structure. it is important information but there is almost no incentive to complete these at the end of semesters.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
