The Proposal The Problem Selling TAs on Learner Centered Education

Biola University, US has reference to this Academic Journal, Selling TAs on Learner Centered Education Steven L Brown Department of Chemistry University of Arizona The Problem Our Laboratory courses are taught by teaching assistants: novice educators alongside little or no knowledge of teaching theories in addition to practices. To effectively create a LCE environment in such a course requires modifying not only the lab course but also the training of the teaching assistants. The Proposal Structure the training of teaching assistants so that incorporate LCE principles in such a way that the TAs would be more likely so that incorporate LCE principles into their own teaching.

Lab Course Paradigm A learner-centered classroom. Constructivist assignments. Collaborative learning. Discovery-based experimentation. We insist that students take ownership of their own learning. We are learning facilitators. Teaching Teaching What is practical? Preterm training In service training Teaching Teaching How do we do it? Modeling

TA Training & Orientation Program Assignments Lab Skill Evaluation. Students are observed performing selected gen chem techniques. Practice presentations. Each student is assigned so that give a 10 minute presentation so that their peers on one of the freshman experiments. Peer critique follows presentation.

TA Training & Orientation Program Assignments Mock Lab. Groups are so that perform assigned experiments. Technique so that be formally evaluated by instructional staff. Practice lab report grading assignment. Students are given three reports so that grade which are discussed during the report grading workshop. TA Training & Orientation Program Key Features Frequent assessment of student knowledge in addition to skill. Stress on student participation in workshops in addition to through assignments. Modeling of LCE Principles while presenting them. Modeling the teaching we wish in consideration of them so that employ. Chem 595c: College Teaching A one-credit colloquium course. Meets one day each week in consideration of ? of the semester. Grade based on five assignments.

College Teaching Topics Assessment in a learner-centered lab class. Evaluating lab reports. Students are required so that bring along three, graded reports. Their grading is be peer evaluated. Writing exams. Identifying learning. Student are assigned so that observe two peer classes in addition to evaluate the teaching methodologies employed. Mid-term exam evaluation. Students are required so that bring a copy of the midterm exam they prepared in consideration of evaluation. Determining in addition to issuing final grades. Peer Observation Discussion & Review of TA Evaluation Procedures. Class Assignments Self evaluation of teaching plan. Group assessment of report grading. Group assessment of exams. Group assessment of exam outcomes. Peer evaluation of two group members. The First Homework Assignment Self-evaluation of Presentation Techniques. Students are assigned so that tape one of their own pre-lab lectures in addition to then listen so that the tap in addition to compare what they hear so that their original design in consideration of the presentation.

The Second Homework Assignment Students are assigned so that observe two classes taught by their peers in addition to so that evaluate how effectively the teaching methodologies employed meet Learner-Centered Education Principles.

?Hallie?s class was extremely different from Sung Yuen?s class. When Hallie began lecture, she simply asked, ?Are there any questions?? Several students asked questions about the lab, all of which demonstrated that they had prepared in consideration of the lab. It was entirely learner centered since Hallie did not lecture at all. She only answered questions when they were brought up by the students. She also commonly asked the students questions as answers so that their own questions? Almost all of the students appeared attentive while Hallie was answering questions. This makes sense because they did not have much of a choice?? ?I have found a few things from these observations that I will try so that incorporate into my teaching. First, I will do my best so that remove a bit of the formality that can sneak into the structure of my class. I think my students are comfortable, but they don?t necessarily loosen up until I start making playful announcements ? lightheartedness seems so that make them more willing so that think on their own in addition to trust their instincts. I do think some formality is necessary so that keep the students responsible in the lab in addition to when completing assignments.? ?Instead of simply coming over in addition to answering the question in addition to fixing the problem alongside the machine, Karen asked what they thought was the problem alongside the instrument or the data. One of the students began so that answer, but quickly stopped in consideration of he had run into a concept that he did not understand. Moments later, the other student began so that talk, picking up slightly behind where the first had stopped but continued further into the problem in addition to question posed. This type of interaction continued, alongside very little direction from Karen, but instead encouragement of the students as they jointly worked so that determine the problem. The answer was reached by the students so that which Karen added a few minor points about other complicating issues. The students went back so that work, seemingly very happy alongside the result? Karen?s approach fulfilled a number of the LCE goals, but most specifically helped so that encourage number seven, a quality peer interaction?

?The TA recognized that his drawing was a bit confusing (although I think that was simply so that sympathize alongside students that seemed confused because the drawing was very clear so that me), in addition to proceeded so that explaining each part in detail. The fact that the drawing was not just assumed so that be understood in addition to some explaining was done by the TA, is a very positive aspect of this method because it allows in consideration of the TA so that talk about something without loosing his students? attention in addition to it allows in consideration of questions, hence enhances teacher-student interactions.?
