Once the assignment has been finalized, you will also be able to check Carleton Central for your offer. Priority Graduate TAs can find this in Carleton Central by clicking the “Graduate TA Management System” link found under the Student Support Services menu. Outside Priority TAs can find this in Carleton Central by clicking the “TA Outside Priority Applications” link under the TA Management menu.
Yes, the School reserves the right to cancel any course tutorial section or replace or reassign teaching assistants for any reason, at any time prior to the third scheduled class, in which case your “Assignment of Duties” contract is thereby ended.

Tutorials are typically 55 hours of work, and labs are typically 32.5 hours of work. In total, a TA can only be assigned a maximum of 130 hours in a term which works out to approximately 10 hours a week.
Under the supervision of the course instructor (faculty or contract instructor ), you may be assigned duties related to marking, tutorial attendance and participation, office hours and similar duties depending on your particular assignment.
You must contact your instructor as soon as you are made aware that you won’t be able to attend your scheduled tutorial. If you are unable to contact your instructor, please e-mail the Math and Stats TA Coordinator Matt Paslawski at firstname.lastname@example.org. Time-permitting, it is your responsibility to find coverage for a missed tutorial. You will get an email address to reach out to other TAs to find coverage.
If unable to contact your instructor, contact Tracie Grisim (email@example.com, 613-520-2155) in the main office as soon as possible.
All TAs can hold their office hours in the Addleman-Semple Resource Centre HP4317, or in the lobby in front of the Math Tutorial Centre HP4322. Graduate TAs can hold their office hours in the PhD Student offices, HP4250, HP4260 and HP4270.
Once per academic year the TA Coordinator will sit in on a tutorial and observe your teaching. This is meant to provide feedback on your teaching and classroom management and is not an evaluation or assessment of your performance.
