GTA Policies and Forms
Graduate Teaching Assistants are vital to the department’s instructional mission. As students in the graduate programs of the department, GTAs are studying to be scholar-teachers of history. As teaching assistants at the same time, GTAs are apprentice instructors, learning how to teach by observation and action in history classrooms under the supervision of qualified faculty members.
Following are links useful to GTAs in the performance of their duties:
- GTA Schedule for World History includes the current semester and recent archives of GTA assignments
- Guidelines for Collaboration between Faculty and GTAs guide interactions between these two groups.
- The Faculty-GTA agreement, completed at the start of every semester, provides a clear way to record expectations for how the faculty and GTA will work in a particular course.
- The GTA Performance Evaluation is completed at the end of every term by faculty members and discussed with the GTA; a copy of this evaluation is retained by the GTA and the Assistant Chair of the Department of History.
- GTAs have created blank seating charts for most of the large lecture halls frequently assigned for department classes. View and download these charts at https://sites.auburn.edu/academic/COLA/history/GTA%20Information/Forms/AllItems.aspx.
