Beginning of Semester: Questions to ask faculty members

Remember that many of these questions may be answered by the instructor during your first meeting or will be outlined in the syllabus. Some won’t apply to all TAs, so keep in mind the specific class you’re assisting for. If many of these questions haven’t been addressed before the semester starts, you should meet with the instructor you’re assisting to clarify your responsibilities.
