- There is no separate discussion section that is taught by the TF, although depending on background and interest, they could lead some topics of the class.
- TFs will meet with the instructor for planning meetings regularly during the semester and may assist with some administrative tasks.
Please contact the instructor as soon as possible, and no later than Thursday at 5 pm if you are interested in this position. Provide a brief description of your teaching experience and any prior experience with organizational sociology, OB, nonprofits, consulting, or business management.
