Abstract or Summary
  • Over several decades, much attention has been paid to the preparation of K-12 teachers. More recently, the body of literature on graduate teaching assistants' preparation for teaching has begun to increase. Since many graduate teaching assistants are hired as community college and university instructors, it is important to understand how they are prepared for teaching. The purpose of this thesis is to understand what newly hired instructors found helpful, and not helpful, about their education. A series of three interviews was conducted with four instructors over the course of one academic year. I share my findings from my investigation of the instructors' experiences during their first years on the job: what courses they draw on while teaching, what courses have influenced their teaching, and what courses they are unable to draw on while teaching. Lastly, I offer recommendations for what types of courses might be helpful in supplementing a prospective instructors' education based on the participants' experiences.
