Classification Information

Classification Number 900248 Classification Title GEOG GIS Lab Monitor Department Geography Level Level C (Specialist) Job Description

The primary responsibility of lab monitors is to provide in-lab and after-hours assistance to students in Introduction to Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and other technical geography classes. Lab monitors are responsible for being familiar with techniques currently taught in Introduction to Geographic Information Systems (GEOG 0120) and should be able to familiarize themselves with techniques used in other aspects of the Geography Department’s technical curriculum if the need arises. Lab monitors must have a good conceptual understanding of GIS and be effective teachers. They should be prepared to be supportive of students who may be struggling with difficult assignments.

As a secondary responsibility, lab monitors work with Geography Department faculty members on projects that employ GIS or other technical skills. It is the responsibly of lab monitors to communicate with their faculty sponsors to receive assignments and track their progress. Time during a shift that is not spent assisting students should be spent working on faculty projects.

A lab monitor candidate must previously have been a strong student in Geographic Information Systems (GEOG 0120). Preference will be given to candidates who have also taken courses such as Cartographic Design (GEOG 0325), GIS: Environmental Science and Management (GEOG 0219), Remote Sensing in Geoscience (GEOL 0222), or Practicing Human Geography (GEOG 0339), which make use of analysis and design software. Experience as a TA or with other types of instruction is highly preferred. Posting Number STU00586 Location Middlebury, VT Campus Posting Information
