      Abstract

      Universities are developing their use of Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTAs) in a haphazard and sometimes exploitative way. This paper discusses relevant literature and examples of practice from Universities in the UK. It goes on to describe the development of the GTA role at the University of Salford and research into this in one academic department. The views of stakeholders concerned are presented including the students, academic staff and GTAs. Universities have to address the increasing quantity of teaching required together with the call for higher quality of delivery. They also place greater demands on the use of academic staff time for research and management. Effective, ethical deployment of GTAs can help manage this tension.
