CS135 Main Page

The responsibilities of a CS135 Tutor may vary over academic terms depending on the number of students and instructor preferences. The general weekly responsibilities will include preparing marking rubrics, holding marking meetings, office hours, tutorials, posting solutions and running moss. It is important to attend lectures and prepare your own assignment solutions in order to maximize your abilities over the course material and potential to help all students. If you are not involved in tutorials, it is still useful to attend one of the tutorial sections.

The responsibilities of all tutors can be found on the ISG webpage.

Getting Started

Welcome to CS 135 (again), but this time, as a member of the course staff! Hopefully you know what you're getting yourself into, but if not, then that's what this TWiki page is here for. Our goal is to guide you through everything that you and your colleagues need to do throughout the term without getting lost in the sauce.

With that being said there are several tasks that will need to be completed before the first week of classes, so let's get started (these do not have to be done in any particular order).
