Teaching and Teaching Assistantships

Doctoral candidates are expected to serve at least two years as teaching and/or research assistants and ideally teach at least one course. Teaching assistantships require work an average of 10 hours per week or 260 per year.

In the first term of their program, they should attend orientation sessions for TAs and abide by WLU and UW guidelines.

Both universities offer substantial resources to assist teaching assistants as well as candidates preparing for careers in university teaching.
