Instructional Assistants (IA’s) work directly with faculty in providing classroom support as well as tutorial services for students enrolled in related courses within the ASL Studies Program. IA Coordinators oversee the scheduling of IA’s, work with the Faculty Supervisor in providing training and orientation for IA’s, and serve as a communication liaison between IA’s and the Faculty Supervisor for any needs. The program is run by the Faculty Supervisor who works closely with the IA Coordinators and Instructional Assistants. Instructional Assistants can earn up to 3 credits as part of ASLN 3292 Experiential Learning and IA Coordinators are generally paid positions.
IA Coordinators must be an undergraduate student and have at least two semesters’ experience as an IA within the ASL Program. In addition, IA Coordinator(s) must have completed ASLN 1101-1104 with a grade of B or better. While no specific overall GPA is required, the IA Coordinator is expected to be in good academic standing.
Instructional Assistants must also be an undergraduate student and have completed the course for which they would like to serve as an IA with a grade of B or better. In rare cases, an IA may be assigned to a course they have not taken if they are recommended by a faculty member within the ASL Studies Program and approved by the Faculty Supervisor. While no specific overall GPA is required, the IA is expected to be in good academic standing.
Applications for any Fall and Summer positions must be submitted by the last day of March. Applications for any Spring positions must be submitted by the last day of November. Submit IA applications or IA Coordinator applications to the Faculty Supervisor.
Revised manuals and applications (January 2021) are listed below:
For Fall 2020 and Spring 2021, once accepted and approved, IA’s must register for ASLN 3292 section 001 or 002 (no longer ASLN 3299, Independent Study):
–ASLN 3292-001 if you will be working exclusively online
–ASLN 3292-002 if you plan to work anytime at the ARC
IA’s are expected to be registered by the first two weeks of the semester.
Many thanks to our Instructional Assistants and Coordinators for all your hard work during the 2020 Spring semester!!
