Eastern Kentucky UniversityFull time Full day
Some mathematics courses are taught in large lecture sections. Labs have been created to provide a setting for small group tutoring, testing, and monitoring weekly progress. The labs are offered as a way to personalize the large groups and provide a comfortable atmosphere where students can ask questions and receive personal attention in their areas of difficulty.
Students who serve as laboratory assistants are eligible to apply for one hour of co-op credit for each lab taught. The work requirement for one co-op credit is 80 hours of work.
All lab assistants must participate in training each semester. Two required training sessions will be held at the beginning of each semester. Other training sessions may be scheduled throughout the semester.
Each lab assistant is required to tutor at least one hour per week in the tutoring center. Additionally, they must proctor one final exam and tutor two hours in the tutoring center during final exam week.
Lab Assistants meet with lecture leaders to discuss details of conducting each lab. Help students understand concepts and clarify procedures. Listen to students and try to understand their difficulties.
