A Program for Improving Graduate Student Teaching.
Friedrich, Gustav W.; Powell, Robert
A program of teacher training that encourages graduate students in speech communication to develop an independent and inquiring style of teaching is outlined in this paper. The program described involves three phases: first, a preinstructional workshop designed to reduce the anxiety of graduate teaching assistants (GTAs) about instructional duties, to introduce GTAs to educational problems they will face and to methods and resources for coping with those problems, and to acquaint GTAs with available university resources; second, a series of lecture/discussions on instructional topics and opportunities to learn about teaching via performance and observation; and third, a summary of the term's experiences that leads to developing a plan for future improvement of teaching skills.
