Teaching Assistant and Student Interactions in a SCALE-UP Classroom
  Location: KFC Courts
  Date: Tuesday, Aug.02
  Time: 6:00PM - 6:45PM
  Author: George DeBeck V, Oregon State University
  Co-Author(s): Dedra Demaree
  Abstract: In the spring term of 2010, Oregon State University began using a SCALE-UP-style classroom in the instruction of the introductory calculus-based physics series. Instruction in this classroom was conducted in three two-hour sessions facilitated by the primary professor and either two graduate teaching assistants (GTAs) or a graduate teaching assistant and an undergraduate learning assistant (LA). During the course of instruction, two of the eight tables in the room were audio and video recorded. We examine the practices of the GTAs and LAs in interacting with the students through both qualitative and quantitative analyses of these recordings. In particular, we examine changes in the practices of the GTAs and LAs as they gain experience in the SCALE-UP environment, as well as differences between the practices of the individual GTAs and Las.
