Large lecture classes often rely on graduate student teaching assistants (TAs) to
lead discussion sections, grade assignments, and provide targeted feedback to undergraduates.
However, common challenges in the working relationship between instructors and TAs
frustrate faculty, graduate, and undergraduate students alike. This presentation shares
recommendations developed in the Teaching Together Learning Community, a year-long learning community in the UCI School of Social Sciences designed to
improve large undergraduate classes by strengthening collaboration between faculty
and graduate TAs. Specific tools for improving faculty-TA communication, supporting
graduate student pedagogical professional development, and engaging in a collaborative
course design process will be shared.
