The Instructional Support Group (ISG) employs temporary staff each term to make up course teams to support instructors in their teaching roles. The temporary staff members include:
- undergraduate co-op student Instructional Support Assistants (ISAs),
- graduate student Instructional Apprentices (IAs), and
- graduate student Teaching Assistants (TAs).
ISAs are employed mainly through the co-op hiring process, and IAs and TAs are assigned by the CS Graduate Office in collaboration with the ISG.
