Weaving Perceptions in ITA Testing and Training

Weaving Perceptions in ITA Testing and Training

Poster Session from "Weaving Patterns of Practice," 2008 POD Network/NCSPOD Conference. For over 25 years, International Teaching Assistants (ITAs) have been the focus of numerous research studies. One area that has been lacking is a comparison of the testing and training processes from the perspectives of the administration, the ITA-hiring departments, and the ITAs themselves. This poster session shares the results of a study that qualitatively evaluated the testing and training process at large Midwestern university to identify areas of miscommunication and inconsistencies with the aim of improving communication across campus. This session will be useful for those involved in the testing and training process of ITAs.
