Abstract

An online discussion group, TA-TALK, supplements weekly staff meetings for 50 graduate students who teach introductory composition and literature classes at the University of California at Irvine. Various dynamics of this electronic exchange are analyzed: The advantages of a listserv over a distributed mailing list or bulletin board system (BBS); benefits of a local listserv over a national listserv in terms of community building, learning sites, and town meetings; the political stance of a list owner; resistance to a listserv; and various nuts and bolts of setting up a listserv.
