Anthony2016 Posted December 6, 2020 Share Posted December 6, 2020 (edited) I was assigned a TAship with a clash with one of the main courses I wanted to take next semester. Before this, I wasn't consulted or asked if the time suited me especially since it's early morning before 8 am class. Others have gotten better sections that start at more reasonable times and they also get to have courses where they only have to grade and not teach sections. I sent an email to the curriculum committee to ask for a section change for my TA and cc-ed my advisor with a sentence that ended like this: "In the future, I will appreciate if I am asked before assignment. This is a difficult time for most of us and flexibility will be appreciated." Is this too demanding from the perspective of a 3rd year international grad student living through a pandemic or acceptable? Thoughts? I really couldn't do the TA-ship Edited December 6, 2020 by Anthony2016 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
