Graduate teaching assistants (GTAs) provide an invaluable contributionto higher education, yet their role is often overlooked and understudied. We reporton a UK-based study to describe the experience and views of GTAs with particularfocus on training and professional development. Our findings draw from a surveyof 32 GTAs along with informal group discussions with a small number of undergraduatesand academic staff. A key theme from our project is the value of subjectspecifictraining. We explore this issue and raise the possibility that in addition touniversity departments, learned societies and academic associations within the disciplinemay have a role to play in providing pedagogical training for GTAs and earlycareer academics.
