Enhancing College Teaching.
Johnson, Glenn R.; And Others
To equip new faculty members with all the necessary tools to begin their careers as highly effective and productive college teachers, formal training in pedagogy was made available for all graduate teaching assistants at Texas A&M University. Twenty-five graduate level instructors in college and public school settings or who expressed interest in college teaching were enrolled in the program. The class met once a week for a semester. The students were divided into four subject-affinity groups. Up to 15 hours of skill training were deveoted to Flanders Interaction Analysis, which examines teaching behavior. In addition, students were presented with a series of microlessons in videotape-equipped miniclassrooms. The training program was augmented by lectures that incorporated differing questioning strategies. Program results were encouraging. (Author/KE)
