Current Job Openings at the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning
STUDY SKILLS COUNSELOR
The Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning is in search of a reliable and knowledgeable graduate student (preferably Phd/EdD) who can assist UR students with study skills, time management, organization, and other academic-related concerns. Study Skills Counselors hold weekly office hours (10-15 hours per week) where they meet individually with students. Additionally, they are asked to present a variety of workshops related to study skills for the campus community. Study Skills Counselors also generally serve as instructors in the ECO summer program (Early Connections Opportunity) and teach a section or possibly two of MOI (Methods of Inquiry, a one credit study skills course that runs during the academic year). There are separate stipends associated with the work for ECO and MOI. Interested graduate students should respond to firstname.lastname@example.org; place job title in subject line. Please note: applicants must be full-time students. No phone calls please.
We are accepting online applications from full-time undergraduate students for classroom notetakers. This position pays $7.25 per hour. That's right! You can actually get paid for going to class! As a notetaker you will be paid for notes prepared during class time. You will be required to drop off notes to our office within 24 hours of each class. If you have questions, contact CETL at 275-9049 or stop by our office, 1-154 Dewey Hall. [Notetaking Application].
PROCTORS and SCRIBES
We are accepting applications from graduate students for proctoring positions. Proctors earn $9.00/hour for general proctoring and $11.00/hour for scribing. Proctors monitor students who receive extra time during exams. Scribes assist students with disabilities in completing exams; occasionally scribes are needed for lab courses.
If you are interested in being a proctor, please stop by our office and fill out an application, or you may [download the application] and return to us by email at email@example.com or drop it off at 1-154 Dewey Hall.
STUDY GROUP LEADERS
Study group leaders take the credit-bearing seminar CAS 352 or 355 for study group leaders, and prepare, conduct and keep records for a weekly study group, typically in league with the course instructor. Study group leaders earn $22.85 per weekly meeting. We are looking for people who excelled in the subjects that they would lead groups in, demonstrate passion for the subject, and want to help others to both learn the subject well and to become better learners. For more information about the Program's purpose and practicalities, see the study group web page. Study groups are scheduled to fit the leaders' timetables. Further questions can be directed to Dr. Alistair Kwan.
To apply, please [download an application form] and submit it, with supporting materials, to us at 1-154 Dewey Hall. Handwritten applications are equally welcome. If you e-mail the form, please send it and the supplementary materials in PDF format.
For the greatest opportunities, apply early in the course registration period. Interviews generally take place before the examination period, and openings for the following term tend to be filled by the end of exams. Occasionally there are further openings at the start of term. All openings are generally filled before the add/drop deadline.
