I have been involved as co-lecturer and teaching assistant of several BSc and MSc Computer Science courses and projects, which always resulted in a pleasurable and formative experience.

Primary responsibilities covered supervising research and course projects, tutoring teams of students, conducting seminars and exercise sessions, correcting exams and deliverables, managing e-learning platforms, attending weekly meetings with instructors to align course content, material, and grading criteria.
