Geography and Environmental Studies GG101 Fall 2018 Instructional Assistant (IA) Marking Positions

The Department of Geography and Environmental Studies invites applications for instructional assistants for the Fall 2018 term in GG101: Introduction to Physical Geography.

Duties: Instructional Assistants are responsible for marking lab assignments and tests as directed by the Lab Instructor of GG101 in the Department of Geography and Environmental Studies.

Given variations in course requirements, there may be an uneven distribution of work on a week-by-week basis. Please note that some weeks an instructor may require an IA to work more or less than 10 hours per week because of the scheduling of such course requirements as mid-term exams, term papers, lab reports or final exams.

The maximum number of hours per week may include: attendance at lectures, preparation time, if the IA involves classroom contact time (e.g., tutorial, lab, lecture, seminar); meeting time with the instructor; formal office hours, as required in each individual IA position as requested by the course instructor.

Qualifications: Qualified applicants must be registered in a program within the Department of Geography or Environmental Studies and/or a related discipline. We invite applications from 3rd and 4th year undergraduates. Only if there are no Laurier students who meet the qualifications of the position will a non-Laurier student be considered.

Compensation: $18.50/hr as per marking only rates. The Instructional Assistant is provided a marking guide with minimal discretionary grading.

Application Process: Applicants must submit in writing a Letter of Interest, which expresses the applicant's suitability for the position and/or any other supporting material and include a schedule of availability. Applications may be sent as hard copy or by e-mail.

Wilfrid Laurier University is committed to equity and values diversity. We welcome applications from qualified individuals of all genders and sexual orientations, persons with disabilities, Aboriginal persons, and persons of a visible minority.
