Conflict Management in an International Teaching Assistant Training Program.
de Berly, Geraldine
This paper discusses how the management of conflict in an international teaching assistant (ITA) training program can benefit all stakeholders and maintain good will between departments and the ITA program by encompassing strategies for mutual gain. It focuses on how the ITA training program at New Mexico State University has resolved many of the conflicts that arise among students, departments, and the program. The paper examines sources of conflict and various conflict scenarios, as well as possible solutions to these conflicts, such as arrangements for late ITA training programs and screenings for students who are unaware of the requirement and close coordination with department heads and faculty to ensure that they are aware of the school's requirements for ITA training.
