TA for Capstone Course, Fall 2020 MAGP Position
TA Position, Fall 2020 Capstone Course, SAIS Master of Arts in Global Policy (MAGP)
In brief, the MAGP capstone course will be restructured this year to look very much like a tightly-guided independent study. Each student will work from the end of August through late November to deliver a policy brief (under 5k words) and a short presentation. The papers will follow an established format, but students will be free to select topics of personal/professional interest.
The course will have 2 co-instructors plus 10-18 expert advisers (possibly as many as one for each of our 18 students). There will be many different moving parts to the exercise and coordination will be essential.
The exercise will also include a week-long "residency" in October. This year everything that week will be virtual, but normally the residency week would be spent overseas. We will be working hard to schedule programming to make up for this change.
This TA role offers an exciting opportunity to meet and work with a wide range of students (all mid-career, working professionals), faculty members, and outside experts.
Interested candidates should submit their resume through SEAL and/or email Dr. Guadalupe Paz, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
