I have been a teaching assistant in the following courses:

Computer systems with project work, 20c and Operating Systems and Process-Oriented Programming, 15c
Work tasks: Held several workshops in written communication (technical reports) and presentation techniques. Gave students oral and written feedback on their reports. Read the students’ individual learning journals and reflections.
Fall Semester of 2017

Introduction to Information Technology, 10c
Work tasks: Helped the students with programming assignments, monitored students discussions, gave feedback on students reports, as well as presentations.
Spring Semester of 2017
Independent Project in Information Engineering, 15c
Work tasks: I attended the seminars and workshop to assist the course lecturer in any way that I can, although most of my work involved reading the student reports and giving the students feedback on the reports, both orally at the seminar and in writing at the final stage. I was responsible for reading eight (out of sixteen) group reports.
Fall Semester of 2016
Information Technology and Society, 15c
Work tasks: I had an individual meeting with each student where we would discuss how he/she can work on improving specific “soft skills” during the course. The students would write a personal learning contract and based on the contract they could evaluate their performance. The course used competencies guideline developed by Curtin University, which focused on nine Graduate Attributes of which all the students should (try to) obtain by the time they graduate. The nine attributes include 1) apply discipline knowledge, 2) thinking skills, 3) information skills, 4) communication skills, 5) technology skills, 6) learning how to learn, 7) international perspective, 8) cultural understanding, and 9) professional skills. I also read and corrected the students’ project report.
