  2. "Teaching Assistant"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at University of Missouri part-time

    Pros

    + Experience teaching
    + TA for different instructors each semester

    Cons

    - TA assignments are suppose to be made with your schedule in mind (that's why you give them your course schedule), but then you will get TA assignments for when you have a class anyway...

    Advice to Management

    Some professors you TA for let the TA's run the show and have little to no involvement in what goes on in lab; it has been my observation when this happens there are more issues such over-assigning of lab work, TA's not showing up to planning meetings, TA's assigning students different problems so there is less standardization across labs, TA's not entering any grades online until late in the semester while others post every week--In short, my experience is that if the instructor is involved in organizing the lab (and the TA's) it is fairer for both the TA's and the students
