The Educational Cultures of International Teaching Assistants and U.S. Universities.
Gorsuch, Greta J.
TESL-EJ, v7 n3 Dec 2003
Looks at what constitutes culture in university teaching settings worldwide and how this may be operationalized as an international teaching assistant (ITA) need. Investigates ITAs' educational attitudes towards teacher and student roles, modes of information presentation, and significant mores of higher education as mediated by gender, previous home-and U.S.-based teaching experience, and previous U.S. study experience.
