current policy
Current Policy
  • Graduate Student Teaching
    • Students working toward graduate certificates or advanced degrees are not permitted to teach graduate courses.
      • http://catalog.oregonstate.edu/ChapterDetail.aspx?key=38#Section1814
  • Issues with current policy
    • Multiple definitions of “teach graduate courses”
    • If a GTA grades the work of a peer, is that “teaching”?
proposed change
Proposed Change
  • Focus on removing all potential conflicts of interest
    • Graduate students A and B are peers
    • Student A is TA for course X
    • Student B is TA for course Y
    • Student A is enrolled in course Y, student B is enrolled in course X
    • There is a potential conflict of interest.
scenario 1 instructor of record
Scenario 1 – Instructor of Record
  • For a graduate student to be appointed as the Instructor of Record for a graduate course (including the 500-level component of a slash course):
    • The unit/program of employment must be separate and distinct from the unit/program of enrollment.
    • The instructor must be appointed to the graduate faculty based on their academic/professional qualification by the unit/program of employment.
      • OAR 580-020-0005 specifies that one may not simultaneously be an OUS faculty member and an OUS graduate student
    • In the event that graduate students from the instructor’s unit/program of enrollment are enrolled in the course, alternative arrangements must be made for evaluating the work of those graduate students.
scenario 2 ta for graduate course
Scenario 2: TA for Graduate Course
  • For a graduate student to be appointed as the Teaching Assistant for a graduate course (including the 500-level component of a slash course), the Director of the Graduate Program must ensure that potential conflicts of interest are avoided to the maximum extent possible. This may include:
    • Making alternative arrangements to evaluate the work of graduate students from the same unit/program as the Teaching Assistant, OR
    • Ensuring that the Teaching Assistant has advanced to candidacy status (after prelims) and all graduate students in the class have not advanced to candidacy
  • If neither of these criteria are met, the program must have a conflict of interest plan approved by the Graduate School.
