Chapter 15 Teaching Assistantships
A teaching assistantship is a contractual agreement between the School and a graduate student for a specified number of hours of teaching support during a term. All teaching assistantships are governed by the PSAC TA TF 901 Collective Agreement. Teaching assistantships serve several functions:
- Most importantly, they provide teaching support to the undergraduate programs of the School;
- they are a basic component of financial support for graduate students;
- and they are an important part of the professional development of graduate students.
