Teaching Assistant

As a Master’s student at Carleton University,  (MASc in Human Computer Interaction) I was asked to be a Teaching Assistant. Although I had experience in industry, training users on the systems that I had implemented and teaching consultants how to configure SAP enterprise software, I did not have teaching experience at a university.

The first course as a TA was Introduction to Programming. I had  some experience programming positions as a consultant but had not taken a course in introductory programming in many years. I went back and studied the  basics in relation the class topics. I saw this as a great chance to review programming and it enabled me to assist students during tutorial sessions.
