Microeconomics with Applications, Uppsala University
Teaching Assistant for the second-year course, B/Microeconomics with Applications. My task was helping students navigate microeconomics and introducing them to game theory. The mentoring took place through discussions with the students, solving exercises on the board, and helping one-on-one in person or via e-mail. The mentorship took place once a week and was three hours long.
Student feedback for my mentorship sessions were overwhelmingly positive; ranging from 4.0/5.0 in my first semester to 4.8/5.0 in my third, and last, semester.
Here's what attendance looked like for the three semesters I was a TA:
One pattern that stands out is the relatively high attendance right before the students' midterm exam and the immediate dip right after said exam. Another interesting observation is the absolute number of participants being higher during the spring semester. From what I've heard, this is because the spring semester is when it is most convenient for non-econ students to enroll in this course as an elective. A third interesting observation is that the first and last session of each semester have the exact same number of students.
Principles of Micro- and Macroeconomics, Uppsala University
Teaching Assistant for the first-year undergraduate course A/Principles of Micro- and Macroeconomics. As a seminar leader, I discussed and evaluated term papers and presentations on economic theory and its applications by the students. The students participated in three seminars where they produced a paper on a topic of their choice within economic theory, and in the final seminar both presented and defended their paper.
