Help your fellow students!

The Department of Astronomy is seeking undergraduate Instructional Aides (IAs) for our introductory courses. 

Duties for an IA are set by the instructor for each class, and could include grading, tutoring, or copying and distribution of homework, exams or other materials.  Generally, attendance at lectures is expected.  We are particularly interested in getting experienced students to work in the lab sections of Astronomy 1101.

If you interested, please send me an email with the courses you can help with, and describe any previous experience as an IA or peer advisor.  The deadline for application is 5:00 p.m. Monday, November 28.
