In addition to advanced discussion of topics from COMM 285A, topics will include theories of teaching and learning, identity, culture and power. In COMM 285B, as a “reflective practicum,” we will combine practical experience with scholarly reflection. Our purpose is to reflect on the philosophy and practice of teaching, and to use our immediate experience as teachers (however novice) to inform our discussions and make them relevant and useful. Through structured readings and assignments, we will work toward a more nuanced understanding of the roles and responsibilities of educators, while improving our teaching practice. By department policy, teaching associates are required to take 2.0 units of COMM 285A in their first semester as TAs; in their second semester, teaching associates are required to take 2.0 units of COMM 285B. TAs, including those in their second year, are always required to attend staff meetings, as arranged by the TA supervisor. As you progress through the four semester TA program, your role and your responsibilities will evolve. Your accumulated experience is integral to the on-going development of COMM 285/staff meetings and to our community of teacher-scholars.
