Abstract: This poster focuses on a proposed study of a graduate student teaching program, created to provide opportunities for learning and teaching development. Graduate teaching assistants (TAs) need skills for their current teaching responsibilities, and for their future role in the academy and beyond (Osborne & Korpan, 2014; Rose, 2012). There are many pressures and time constraints for TAs (Fairbrother, 2012), and universities do provide resources, support, and opportunities for training: but what are TAs specifically learning about teaching? Boman(2013) found in her study that a TA training program enhanced teaching skills, and at the same time she identified a need for more research on the learning outcomes of TA development programs.
