I usually prefer to have ex-students on the course staff, so if anyone is interested, I would be happy if you’d let me know if you’re interested in doing it, and if you do, then when. (The form is at the bottom of this page.)
What would I be doing?
Generally speaking, there are two parts: grading work, and TAing: helping students with the material, with homework, and anything else that might be related (like running a tutorial session). Most people do both, but some prefer to only one:
How much time is involved?
The department has limits on the number of weekly hours allocated (around 15), but I usually try to get more people on the staff and therefore lighten the load. So usually it ends up being up to a maximum of 10 weekly hours at most — but that depends on how many people we manage to get on the staff.
I’ll be on co-op / graduating / etc — can I do it?
It used to be possible in the past, but now the department generally forbids hiring people who are on co-op or people that have graduated.
I didn’t do too well in the class, so it’s not for me, right?
Wrong. There’s generally no problem to be on the course staff, regardless of how you did. This is true for both the grading and the TAing aspects.
