Teaching self-efficacy: A three-tier mentorship model for STEM Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTAs)
Across disciplines, instruction at the introductory level relies largely on Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTAs). This session introduces a three-tier mentorship model implemented at Georgia State University that integrates peer, supervisory, and faculty mentorship for Introductory Biology GTAs. This program successfully clarified expectations for first-time instructors training to become GTAs and provided a sense of community leading to improvements in teaching self-efficacy. Attendees in this session will learn the various steps in our mentorship model and decide if they would like to implement it at their respective institutions. Strategies on filing an IRB, data collection, and analysis will also be discussed.
