Teacher Training for Ph.D. Students: Recommendations for Content and Delivery
Bergner, Jason; Lin, Ling; Tepalagui, Nopmanee Kong
e-Journal of Business Education and Scholarship of Teaching, v9 n1 p61-69 2015
The rising cost of education coupled with greater options for education, such as online and community colleges, has resulted in greater emphasis on teaching quality. However, students in Ph.D. business programs receive little formal training in teaching, as the vast majority of their time is focused on learning the craft of research. We expand on this issue of the need for teacher training for business doctoral students and offer three recommendations as specific areas for training: developing rapport with students, teaching in an online environment, and training specifically for international Ph.D. students. Further, we offer a suggestion for a possible cost- and time-effective way to deliver the training, using training offered by one university as a model.
