Undergraduate Teaching Fellow opportunity

Calling all students:

A funding request for more Undergraduate Teaching Assistants for my USU 1320 Humanities class has been approved so my need for “UTFs” has gone up greatly.  I will have a team of 5 UTFs for my 1320 class.  If you are interested in being a UTF for me, please contact me as soon as possible.

Some general information:

The Undergraduate Teaching Fellow is a program that pays students to assist in teaching a university class.  Students will run “recitation sections” (getting the opportunity to teach), will help correct (though not “grade”) assignments, and in general get a “behind the lectern” view of a university class.  It is a great opportunity for everyone, no matter what you career goals may be.  It is no accident that UTFs tend to be among the best students at the university.

UTFs are paid $750 in the form of a scholarship for the term, with the expectation that they will work 100 hours over the term.  That means attending every class (3 hours a week) along with 3 other hours a week of work.  Schedule is flexible, and some weeks you’ll work more and others less.

You do not need to be a philosophy major, you need not have taken this class from me, and while upperclass students are preferred that is not required.

More information on the Undergraduate Teaching Fellow program can be found here.

Please contact me ASAP if you are interested!  harrison.kleiner@usu.edu

Associate Vice Provost and Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Utah State University. I teach across the curriculum, but am most interested in continental philosophy, ancient and medieval philosophy as well as Catholic thought, all of which might be summed up as an interest in the ressourcement tradition (returning in order to make progress). I also enjoy spending time thinking about liberal education and its ends.
