This is an abstract from a Minicourse conducted at the Joint Mathematics
Meetings, January 10-13, 1996, Orlando, Florida.
Minicourse #18: "Training tools for mathematics TA teaching workshops"
Organized by Marilyn McCollum, North Carolina State University.
Most TAs in mathematics have had little or no formal preparation in teaching. Colleges and universities want successful teaching from their TAs. Broad training concepts have been shared at professional meetings. and have stimulated creativity, but have not given participants in-depth exposure to specific implementation tools. In this minicourse participants will experience TA training with specific materials that can be easily used or adapted to any TA training program.
