* The department worked with the College of Letters and Sciences to make
head TAs available to courses taught by Faculty Associates. The idea
is that you can identify a specific TA (1 per course) that you want to
hire to help with course administration, hopefully but not necessarily
for the whole year. Head TAs are expected to have some different roles
than Standard TAs, and in return earn higher pay.
