Teaching Them to Teach: Programmatic Evaluation of Graduate Assistants' Teaching Performance
Sobel, Karen; Avery, Susan; Ferrer-Vinent, Ignacio J.
Public Services Quarterly, v12 n3 p189-213 2016
Academic libraries are one of the most important sources of "on the job" training for future library instructors. Librarians who supervise and assess these future library instructors (often in graduate assistant positions) often choose to provide observations and feedback each semester to these instructors in training. Scholarly literature, however, provides little information on whether this system helps graduate assistants to develop as teachers. The authors of this article assessed graduate assistants' performance as teachers over three semesters using a system of observation and self-assessment. They analyzed both patterns and areas of growth and discuss the strengths and weaknesses of this system.
