Lower Division Education in the University of California
Research and Evaluation Reports (1986)
The Task Force examines the roles of the several types of instructional faculty: Academic Senate faculty, non-Senate or temporary faculty, and teaching assistants. It also reviews the reasons for what it defines as the three-tiered approach to instruction at the University. The Task Force calls for augmented review of faculty teaching; better review and evaluation, and fuller incorporation of temporary faculty into the educational life of the University; and improved recruitment, training, supervision, and evaluation of teaching assistants.
