Working Effectively with Graduate Assistants



November 1995 | 156 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Preparing graduate assistants to become better teachers and researchers is one of the more demanding supervisory challenges facing academics today. Written by two leading authorities in the field, Working Effectively with Graduate Assistants has a twofold purpose: providing faculty members with a better understanding of how to think and plan as a supervisor and preparing and nurturing the next generation of university teachers, scholars, and researchers. This book not only discusses the key issues but also provides many specific tips, resources, and strategies that assist supervisors. Also included is a chapter by Gabriele Bauer that discusses international graduate assistants and issues such as English as a second language and the American educational system. Working Effectively Graduate Assistants is an indispensable guide for university faculty and staff members in all disciplines.
