Please submit a Personal Essay that gives us insight into who you are as a teacher. This document is your opportunity to describe how your teaching helps to enhance the undergraduate experience at Georgia Tech. We would particularly like you to focus on and write about your teaching through the following lenses. Keep in mind that you should provide evidence for any claims you make.
You may choose to include a summary of your Teaching Assistant Opinion Survey (TAOS) scores or an example of how you taught a specific lesson. Please make sure your essay is no more than 2 pages in length (single-spaced, 12-pt font, Times New Roman).
Please submit your CV. Your CV should include your teaching experience.
Two (2) Letters of Recommendation are required to complete your TA Award application. One (1) letter must be submitted by your school/department representative coordinating the school-level TA awards. The other letter of recommendation can come from anyone who can attest to the quality of your teaching. This might include a current or former student, another TA, or a supervising faculty member. Provide this link to your http://ctl.gatech.edu/node/602462 references.
This application form, your Personal Essay, your CV, and your 2 Letters of Recommendation must be submitted no later than Friday, March 1, 2019 at 11:59 p.m.
Based on the group's suggestion, we'd like to meet and talk about feedback gathered from students in at least one of your courses. To make it work you should plan to distribute an early course feedback survey to students during the week of February 4th-8th -- ideally at your last class meeting of the week, so we can discuss the feedback before you see them again! Here's a handy link to information about surveying students for feedback (with examples).
You might also be interested in having Ruth (or someone else from CTL) come to your class and conduct a Class Dialogue (see here for more information). This is best done in Weeks 4-6 of the semester, and is a great way to get very robust and helpful feedback from students, while also contributing to their sense of ownership in the course. I don't recommend doing a survey and a Class Dialogue in the same course, but I do highly recommend the Class Dialogue option as an experience you should have at some point in your early career.
