Teaching assistants at ITU

Teaching assistants

Teaching Assistants (or TAs) are essential to the teaching at ITU. TAs assist the course teachers with a number of tasks, including being present at exercises for Q&A, help and instructions to students.

From September 2023, all management and hiring of Course and Study Lab TAs is anchored in SAP and handled by the TA Project team.
Going forward, please direct any questions or concerns related to TAs to ta-support@itu.dk.

TA report

An ITU-project group has during Autumn 2022 and Spring 2023 collected- and analysed data about Teaching assistants (TAs) at ITU and the TA process from recruitment to  exit.

The aim was to uncover the value TAs add to the learning environment and to optimize TA-related processes.
