American Journal of Physics
written by Dean A. Zollman and Jacqueline Spears
A traditional part of the "education" of a physics graduate student is facing his first class as a teaching assistant.  Unfortunately, the most the new teaching assistant learns from this encounter is how little he knows about teaching.  The laboratory instructors orientation program at Kansas State University offers the instructors the opportunity to see some of the problems he will face and some methods for handling them before he begins teaching.  The program, which includes introductions to Transactional Analysis and Piaget's theory of intellectual development, is based on laboratory experiences undertaken by the new instructor before classes begin.
