AAUSC SPOTLIGHT: Working with Undergraduate Teaching Assistants in Foreign Language Classes

  • 22 Nov 2019
  • 12:00 PM - 12:20 PM (EST)
  • 149A

This presentation will discuss the experience of working with undergraduate teaching assistants in beginning foreign language classes in a liberal arts college and will highlight advantages and challenges from a two-fold perspective: that of the faculty supervisor and that of the undergraduate teaching assistants. Presenters will examine roles and responsibilities of undergraduate teaching assistants and supervisors, will discuss training and mentoring of the apprentice teachers, will present examples of best practices in and outside of class and students' feedback. The faculty supervisor and undergraduate teaching assistants will share their viewpoint and assessment on the teaching experience and will provide practical examples for successful peer-teaching instruction.
