Produced by Teaching Assistants at USC in conjunction with the Center for Excellence in Teaching, the TA Wiki provides information on all areas of an assistantship at the university, and serves as a forum for the exchange of ideas among current students and faculty. As the wiki expands, it will reflect multiple perspectives on issues relevant to teaching at USC such as: assessment, student-led instruction, plagiarism, and teaching with technology, among others. Entries are based on the first-hand experience of current or recent Teaching Assistants at USC. By drawing more Teaching Assistants into these discussions, it is hoped that the TA Wiki will create a more cohesive community of graduate students at USC who will collectively seek to improve instruction and further their individual development as mentors and aspiring professors.
