The volume is organized around three aspects of professional development for international teaching assistants:
Part 1: Grounding Practice in Research and Researching Practice
Part 2: Beginnings, Challenges, and Growth
Part 3: Collaborative Practices and Partnerships Across Disciplines
Change, progress, and commitment are themes that are interwoven through all the case studies. Many of the programs began through the efforts of a few dedicated individuals who have raised awareness of the seriousness of the issue and have crafted solutions that planted the seeds for a diversity of programs that include
Partnerships among units throughout a university
University-wide commitment through mentoring activities
Technology-enhanced classroom learning, self-assessment, and professional development
Professional standards across disciplines
The case studies in this volume are useful for pre- and in-service teacher education. Because the context of each case is described in detail, readers can easily evaluate cases in light of their own circumstances. The cases have been selected from EFL, ESL, and bilingual education settings around the world to represent the wide range of language environments in which TESOL functions.
