                  REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION
  
  RFD for creation of soc.college.ta group for discussions  regard-
  ing useful information for Teaching Assistants.
  
REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION:
  
  Create an UNMODERATED Usenet newsgroup called "soc.college.ta"
  
  This   announcement   is   cross-posted    to    the    newsgroup
  soc.college.grad  and comp.edu whose readers may have an interest
  in the discussion about the new group.
  
PURPOSE:
  
  The purpose of the newsgroup "soc.college.ta" would  be  for  ex-
  change  of  information  (and tools) to help teaching assistants.
  Discussions could pertain to useful tips,  sample  programs/data,
  useful software tools, assignment ideas, spread sheets, handouts,
  style sheets etc.
  
  Topics of discussion could include software  packages  available,
  sources  of  data, sample programs, formulae, applicable publica-
  tions, and peoples' thoughts on assorted technical issues.
  
  It is anticipated that readers of the group would be teaching as-
  sistants  and  Professors  who  are  interested in techniques for
  better teaching.  Participation by beginners,  experienced  TA's,
  and Professors will be encouraged.
  
RATIONALE:
  
  There is currently no group which directly caters to the need  of
  teaching assistants. Much of the discussion in the current group,
  soc.college.grad, is of a more general nature. Yet, there appears
  to  be  a  following  of people who are interested in a newsgroup
  which would have a more specific orientation towards  issues  af-
  fecting teaching assistants. This group is intended to answer the
  needs and interests of this group.
  
  It is hoped that the creation of the group, "soc.college.ta" will
  encourage  and facilitate a greater amount of sharing of informa-
  tion and experience by individuals.
  
NEWSGROUP CREATION:
  
  The discussion period will be from March  3,  1993  to  April  2,
  1993.
  
  Please post all discussions to "news.groups"
  
  If a consensus is reached by the end of the discussion period,  a
  CFV, (call for votes) will be posted at that time.
  
  The voting period will last for 30 days.

This is the second posting on the RFD for soc.college.ta.  This RFD
incorporates all the issues raised from the first RFD. Also, since the
abbreviation 'ta' may not refer to 'teaching-assistant' outside of the
US, comments on a name change to soc.college.teaching-asst is
requested.

                  REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION

  RFD for creation of soc.college.teaching-asst group for discus-
sions regarding useful information for Teaching Assistants. This
request supercedes the previous RFD for soc.college.ta.

REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION:

  Create an UNMODERATED Usenet newsgroup called "soc.college.teaching-asst"

  This announcement is cross-posted to the newsgroup soc.college.grad
and comp.edu whose readers may have an interest in the discussion
about the new group.

PURPOSE:

  The purpose of the newsgroup "soc.college.teaching-asst" would be
for exchange of information (and tools) to help teaching as- sistants.

  Discussions could pertain to issues such as:

  - culturally diverse classrooms
  - roles (teacher, TA, student)
  - learning styles
  - TA-student relations
  - TA-supervisor/professor relations
  - working conditions
  - lesson-planning
  - avoidance of harrassment (as victim or offender)
  - language problems (i.e. International TA language problems)
  - marking consistency
  - TA training resources
  - classroom/lab management
  - specific tools for a particular subject area

  It is anticipated that readers of the group would be teaching
assistants and Professors who are interested in techniques for better
teaching. Participation by beginners, experienced TA's, and Professors
will be encouraged.

RATIONALE:

  There is currently no group which directly caters to the need of
teaching assistants.  Much of the discussion in the current group,
soc.college.grad, is of a more general nature. Yet, there appears to
be a following of people who are interested in a news- group which
would have a more specific orientation towards issues affecting
teaching assistants.  Apparently, there is a listserv mailing list
([email protected]), which caters to some of these issues. A
bidirectional gateway can be established to this mailing list. This
group is intended to answer the needs and in- terests of this group.

  It is hoped that the creation of the group,
"soc.college.teaching-asst" will encourage and facilitate a greater
amount of sharing of information and experience by indi- viduals.

NEWSGROUP CREATION:

  Please post all discussions to "news.groups"

  If a consensus is reached by the end of the discussion  period,
a CFV, (call for votes) will be posted at that time.
