  1. Graduate Student Teaching Graduate Council

  2. 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”?

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Why? • Intent is to provide guidelines to programs • Many programs will be able to operate within the guidelines • If special situations exist with a program: • Request exception from the Graduate School

  7. Action • Need approval to change policy • http://catalog.oregonstate.edu/ChapterDetail.aspx?key=38#Section1814
