2019 Student Research Conference:
32nd Annual Student Research Conference

Students’ Perceptions of Undergraduate Teaching Assistants in Health Science

Jared T. Beck
Dr. Nancy Daley-Moore, Faculty Mentor

Undergraduate Teaching Assistants (TAs) are commonly used in health science classrooms, but there has been little research conducted evaluating the effectiveness and perceptions of TAs. Through a series of in-depth qualitative interviews with undergraduate health science students, this study evaluates students’ perceptions of TAs in health science courses. The primary questions investigated were: What are students’ perceptions of TAs in the classroom? What are students’ expectations of TAs in the classroom? How has having a TA in their classroom impacted their learning experiences? Addressing the gap in the current literature will aid in future departmental programming and serve as a foundation informing future practice.
