Learning To Learn: New TA Preparation in Computer Pedagogy.
Duffelmeyer, Barb Blakely
Computers and Composition, v20 n3 p295-311 2003
Examines graduate student teaching assistants' (TAs') adjustment to their first teaching experience in first-year composition (FYC) classrooms. Notes that the experience mirrors that of their FYC students. Considers how both new groups work within initially uncomfortable but ultimately developmentally positive levels of ambiguity, multiplicity, and open-endedness. Presents a perspective on TA preparation for computer pedagogy, based on Etienne Wenger's (1998) notion of communities of practice. (SG)
