General Announcements

Apply to Become a Section Leader!

We are happy to announce that the online application to become a Section Leader for Spring 2015 is now open at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1C77ZI0RWWjw91DHXG019x1qyXAcnUmprYsf1x_9o9iA/viewform !

For those who are unfamiliar with the Section Leader position, a Section Leader is essentially an undergraduate TA who helps foster the learning of students in one of the introductory Computer Science courses (127A/B, 245, and 335). To get a full sense of the responsibilities of a Section Leader and to see if you are eligible to become a section leader, please see https://www.cs.arizona.edu/slprogram

We would like to point out just a few things about the application process. In addition to filling out the online application (linked above), you must

· Send us your unofficial transcript in an email as an attachment to slcoord@cs.arizona.edu .

· Sign up for an interview slot on the door of GS 733. Interviews are on the Friday and Saturday, November 21st and November 22nd.

· Prepare a 5-minute presentation for your interview, as if you were a Section Leader teaching a topic to a class.

· Have all of this completed by the End of Day Wednesday, November 19th.

Interview slots are on a first come first serve basis, so we encourage you to apply sooner rather than later if you are drawn to this opportunity. The reminders given above are also included on the last page of the online application.

When filling out the application, you will also notice questions regarding interest in becoming a undergraduate TA for other courses. This serves as a communications to pass your name along if these positions open up, but the primary purpose of the application is for the Section Leader position.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact slcoord@cs.arizona.edu and we will respond to you as soon as we can.
