Okoth, Edith A.; Mupinga, Davison M.
Online Submission, Presented at the Academy of Human Resource Development International Research Conference in The Americas (Indianapolis, IN, Feb 2007)
Many universities rely on graduate students for teaching and/or research activities. Among the teaching assistants are international students who lack the pedagogical background and cultural exposure to succeed as teaching assistants. This study evaluated a graduate teaching assistants training program for international students. Data were collected through interviews of graduate assistants, instructors, and from training documents. Overall, the training program was considered relevant; although additional topics and changes to the program scheduling were suggested. (Contains 1 table.)
