Undergraduates as Classroom Teachers

Xavier's Chemistry Department has a tradition of involving undergraduates in the teaching process, from having sophomores teach General Chemistry Drill to the more recent MEDIC-B Teaching Assistant Program for General Chemistry Laboratory. Among the many aims of these programs, one is to promote an interest in teaching, particularly at the college level.

The dicussion will focus not only on the successes of these programs, but also on problems and strategies for avoiding problems associated with having undergraduates as classroom teachers.
