Lambert, Leo M., Ed.; Tice, Stacey Lane, Ed.
This report describes and documents the state of affairs in preparing graduate students for college and university teaching responsibilities. Chapter 1 summarizes the results of a survey on teacher assistant training and publishing and provides a review of the centrality of the teaching assistantship in graduate education. The publication's two main chapters present abstracts of programs with successful and creative approaches to preparing graduate students to be teachers. Chapter 2 profiles 28 centralized programs based in a graduate school, center for teaching excellence, English-as-a-Second-Language program, or similar central university office. Chapter 3 profiles 44 discipline-based programs in the biological sciences, chemistry, English, composition, foreign languages, mathematics, psychology, and social sciences, and speech communication. Chapter 4 examines the future considerations in preparing the professorate, and chapter 5 provides two directories of more than 360 centralized and discipline-based programs, listing contact names, job titles, institutions, addresses, telephone and fax numbers, and E-mail addresses. Appendices include the survey instrument and contact forms. (GLR)
