Teaching Expectations and Related Backgrounds of Foreign Science and Engineering Students at the University of Pittsburgh.
Pfau, Richard H.
The results are presented of a survey aimed at determining what proportion of foreign graduate students studying science and engineering at the University of Pittsburgh will teach after completing their studies, what preparation these students have for teaching, and if they are interested in preparing themselves while at Pittsburgh for college or university teaching. About 80 percent of the students who responded to the questionnaire either plan to teach, or think they might teach, after completing their studies. Of those who might teach, most indicated that they are interested in participating in a course, seminar, or workshop aimed at preparing them to be more effective college and university teachers.
