How are TA's chosen to teach in the computer classroom

Mike Palmquist - Director of Composition, Colorado State University

We select GTA's using the following criteria. (1) Are they interested in teaching in the computer classrooms? (2) Have they completed the training? If we have more requests than we can accommodate, we look for obvious scheduling conflicts. If that doesn't work, we look at the two or three folks who are interested in a particular time/date and ask ourselves who has had the best reviews from classroom observations and grading conferences? We ask who we think would be the best teacher, essentially.
