For international doctoral students it is often difficult to gather teaching experience at JLU Giessen as lectures on Bachelor`s and Master`s level are mainly held in German. Therefore, the GGS is happy to announce the fifth round of the "GGS-Teaching Assistantship Programme". The aim of the GGS Teaching Assistantship Programme is to offer international doctoral students the chance to gather teaching experience which is a key skill if you intend to pursue an academic career.
If you are an international doctoral student please feel invited to share your ideas for paid teaching assistantships [14,10 € per hour including preparation time and lecture time]. Please note that the programme is designed exclusively for GGS members who are not German citizens and who have obtained their BA degree (or equivalent) outside of Germany. Please note that the TAs are not scholarships.
Which kind of courses will be offered within the TA programme depends entirely on your ideas! Do you have skills, talents and expertise that you would like to share with your fellow doctoral students? Would you like to offer an academic writing training for young doctoral students? Do you have software skills that other GGS members might benefit from? Or you would like to offer a language course in your mother tongue? Tell us all about your ideas on the !
Applications are assessed against the following selection criteria:
- innovativeness of the project idea
- clear and consistent description of the project idea
- quality of the didactic concept
- practicability of the course plan/ time schedule
- attractiveness of the course for doctoral candidates of the GGS
