From Teaching Assistant (TA) Training to Workplace Learning
Korpan, Cynthia
Collected Essays on Learning and Teaching, v7 n2 2014
In this paper, I propose a renewed look at how teaching assistants (TAs) are being prepared to fulfill their duties in higher education. I argue that the apprenticeship model of learning that is currently in use be replaced by the more holistic workplace learning approach. Workplace learning theories take into consideration the complexity of the learning situation of the TA.
