Journal of College Science Teaching
Training the Teaching Assistant: Matching TA Strengths and Capabilities to Meet Specific Program Goals
written by France Lawrenz, Patricia Heller, Ronald Keith, and Kenneth Heller
This article describes a teaching assistant (TA) training program to improve quality of a college physics course. It presents the goals and structures of the physics course and the TA training program and describes the formative evaluation procedure and its role in developing the training model. The work concludes that students in the physics class valued the recitation and laboratory sections taught by trained TAs.
