Etkina, Eugenia
Journal of Graduate Teaching Assistant Development, v7 n3 p123-37 Fall 2000
Describes a "Basics of Teaching Physics" course as an approach to training teaching assistants (TAs) in science, math, engineering, and technology (SMET) departments. The regular graduate course is based on constructivist learning: TAs construct their own understanding through guided questions, problem solving, reading and analyzing papers, discussions of their teaching experience, and group work.
