Graduate Student Teaching Request Form

Guiding Principles:

  • Sessional teaching is an important component of a doctoral student’s teaching dossier, and an integral part of their learning. The Department of Mathematics and Statistics strives to ensure that PhD students graduate with a well-rounded teaching dossier;
  • Coursework, research and thesis completion is, however, the primary objective for all students and must remain paramount. In order to support a well-rounded student development, the department’s practice is to limit sessional teaching assignments to 1 section per academic year. Under special circumstances, a second section may be offered based on need, and supervisor approval;
  • Students will have demonstrated teaching effectiveness gained from working in the Assistance Centre, leading tutorials or labs or other teaching experience prior to being offered a sessional teaching appointment;
  • Initial teaching assignments will often be made in Spring or Fall in coordinated courses in order to provide supervision and mentorship throughout the first assignment;
  • Faculty mentors will be assigned for all summer teaching assignments;
  • Masters students will be considered for sessional teaching work provided that they have outstanding tutorial or lab experience, and provided there is an appropriate assignment available.
