Prerequisites: Permission of instructor
Offered: Fall/Spring/Summer

Students are teaching assistants (T.A.s) for one of the courses required for concentration in either Brain and Cognitive Sciences or Neuroscience. The student must have previously completed the course for which they are serving as a T.A. Depending upon the course, undergraduate T.A.s might be responsible for regular recitation sections, study groups, demonstrations and aiding in preparation of quizzes and exams. T.A.s are expected to attend all classes and hold regular office hours.

The following procedures are required to receive credit for a Teaching Tutorial:

  1. Obtain an Independent Studies form from the Center for Academic Support, 312 Lattimore Hall.
  2. Complete the form with the faculty member who is sponsoring your tutorial. The title of the course should be "Teaching Tutorial in (course name)". The criteria for evaluation must be clearly stated on the Independent Studies form.
  3. Leave the last copy of the form with your sponsor to be used for the evaluation of your work at the end of the semester. That evaluation will be returned to the Supervisor of Academic Records.
  4. Before the end of the first week in the semester, give the completed Independent Studies form to the undergraduate programs coordinator for Brain & Cognitive Sciences (Email: ). The Committee on Undergraduate Studies will review the proposal, and forward the approved form to the Center for Academic Support. You will be contacted if any questions arise in the review of your proposal.
