Okay, could be better

Current Employee - Teaching Assistant in Los Angeles, CA
Current Employee - Teaching Assistant in Los Angeles, CA

I have been working at UCLA part-time (more than a year)

Pros

There are some great professors you can TA for who are awesome at teaching and really care about the issues that come up with teaching students. Other

Cons

In my department there's one class that all new teaching assistants take, but it is not very helpful because it only covers very general teaching tips. It's not at all helpful for managing issues that will come up in the class you end up TAing for. There is also not a lot of guidance in program for improving at teaching.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They need to create a meeting group that meets throughout the quarter and year where teaching assistants for specific departments can talk about how teaching is going in their classes.

    Pros

    -Working alongside bright and motivated people.

    Cons

    -Internal review system as a TA is flawed for classes that migrated from paper feedback to online feedback. Only the students doing poorly bothered to respond.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on education instead of trying to make more people buy more blue-and-gold crap.
