Some of us have been noticing during the past two years the inconsistent doling out of TA responsibilities in terms of the number of credits assigned for teaching workloads. What group of faculty/grad students makes these decisions, and how much has advisor advocacy factored into establishing teaching loads for each TA?
Can we get more grads involved in this process? Do we have 1) an established, formal wording about what constitutes a full workload across a single academic year, and 2) a formal explanation about reasonable adjustments that the deciding body can make after a TA contract is signed?1 vote
