University Teaching: The Impact of an In-Service Program for Teaching Fellows in Chemistry.
Yaghlian, Nevart
This study was concerned with the development, implementation and assessment of an in-service program for teaching fellows in the chemistry department at The University of Michigan. The in-service program focused on the interpersonal aspect of teaching. A total of fifteen teaching fellows were involved in different aspects of the program, with eight of them participating in all its phases. Also included in the sample were 498 students enrolled in chemistry classes taught by the teaching fellows. Variables considered in assessment of the program were attitude toward teaching as a career, job satisfaction, interpersonal style of teaching fellows, and satisfaction of students with teachers. The findings indicated that students taught by participating teaching fellows were more satisfied than were students of non-participants. Change in attitude toward teaching seemed to be related to a consideration on the part of teaching fellows of the relative advantages and disadvantages in teaching. Change in job satisfaction seemed to be related to the level of ambivalence toward teaching. (Author/PS)
