What is the workload for CSE 599?
CSE 599 is a 2-unit course: expect to spend up to 6 hours per week on this course, including the 80 minute weekly session. The additional three-and-a-half or so hours per week will be spent evaluating and refining your TA activities, preparing for CSE 599 practicum sessions, and consulting background research papers, information guides, and videos.
Around Week 6 of the quarter, we will have a checkpoint to confirm that you are on track for successfully completing the course requirements. Students who do not pass this checkpoint may not be offered TA appointments for the next quarter.
More specifically, you are expected to complete the following:
You'll submit pre- and post- surveys along with regular reflections through Google forms accessed via your @eng.ucsd.edu account. You should receive email receipts with each form submission.
You will submit the observation reflection assignment on Gradescope.
For informal conversations about teaching and crowd-sourced advice, the CSE-TA Slack workspace is available for your use. Join the workspace using this invite link. Channels for conversations about grading, discussions, and exams have already been created.
This class is taken S/U. We hope that every student will successfully earn a passing grade in this class. To do so, you need to meet or exceed the following minimum passing thresholds in each course component.
