Graduate Employee discussion leaders routinely attend lectures and keep up with course reading material. They teach a 50-minute discussion section each week and meet with the instructor weekly to discuss best methods and strategies for reviewing class materials with students.

Graduate employees, depending on their area of expertise and standing, may sometimes be offered the opportunity to present a guest lecture in the class in consultation with the lecturer. GEs assist in tracking attendance and grading multiple-choice, reading quizzes throughout the term.

They grade three writing assignments of two to four pages in length together with the lecturer. GEs complete administrative assignments related to their discussion section (record keeping, attendance, participation, CANVAS site, etc.) and field student questions related to the class.

Graduate students pursuing any master’s or doctoral degree may apply.
