Description

The College of Information Sciences and Technology (IST) seeks to hire undergraduate students enrolled in the College of IST to fill Learning Assistant positions for the Fall, 2019 semester. Learning Assistants are assigned to a particular IST, SRA, DS, or CYBER course, and they work closely with instructors to provide challenging and meaningful learning experiences for students enrolled in the course. Learning Assistants are responsible for assisting with in-class activities, specialized software or virtual labs, feedback on writing, grading (assuming a rubric), out-of-class tutoring, and other learning-focused responsibilities. To be considered for a position, the applicant must have received an A- or A in the course and have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.2. Unless negotiated otherwise, the successful applicant’s schedule must be open during the class meeting time for the course. Applicants are eligible for this paid position if they are seniors at Penn State or have completed one semester of LA service for credit in the College of IST. For information on the on-the-job training requirements, see the College of IST’s LA webpage: https://learning.ist.psu.edu/la-job-description/. Review of applications will begin in April and continue until the need is met.
