    I'll pity your students and you.

    Being a TA would suck. So, what you just have to grade everyone's homework??

          What is a Teaching Assistant?

          Doesn't the prof teach? Why does he/she need an assiatant?

          Are you faculty? DO you get paid? Are you like a player/coach?

          Everybody's gotta elevate from the norm...

              Im with TDK on the TnA

              but I don't pity your students, the TAs usually dont have to be the guy/gal who hands out dicipline or the smack down.

              Unless of course you have no clue about the subject you are TA-ing!

              I just wish I could have got into Berkely

                    I'm a TA... which means I run the labs and hold office hours to help students w/ their hwk and labs. i won't be grading homeworks, that's for the graders to do, but I'll be grading and proctoring the tests.

                    It's cool, I like to think I'm a nice guy who nows my stuff.

                    It'll be an interesting experience, because the people i'm TAing are usually around my age.

                    I'm getting paid.. I think it's something like $21 an hour b4 taxes, and i'll be billing around 10 hours a week. It's a good way to buff up my resume, get some experience, get some cash, and have some fun.

                      So, wait, you are doing all the stuff my profs did in college.

                      So what work exactly do the profs do at Berkeley, since it seems that grading, labs, and office hours are farmed out.

                          They still do office hours, we just hold extra ones. They give the lectures. They make the tests, lay out the course structure.

                          Most proffs at Berkeley are there because of research, not to teach. Research brings in money to the University, not teaching.

                            I guess major universities are different.

                            At the smaller liberal arts colleges, like my alma mater, teaching is all they do.


                            Not a better system, just sounds way different.

                              Actually, I would prefer your system.

                              The way the university hires, they hire based on research. But, a proff could be completely brilliant, yet suck as a teacher.
