Graduate Teaching Assistants

A Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA) supports academic units in delivering their undergraduate and graduate curriculum.

Graduate Teaching Assistantships offer you the opportunity to contribute to the learning of undergraduate and graduate students and to develop transferrable leadership and communication skills applicable to your own graduate program, and life after Laurier. For example, as a GTA, you may be expected to lead a tutorial and generate discussion among the students, evaluate assignments and tests, and respond to enquiries from students who may be struggling with content and need additional guidance. All of these responsibilities, and more, will require taking initiative, careful planning, working closely with others, and conscientious decision-making.
