dc.description.abstract Writing Program Administrators in large universities face the challenge of providing First -Year Writing instruction to progressively larger and more linguistically diverse undergraduate classes and must do so with a transient cadre of instructors , namely graduate students . In a dynamic environment such as this , fast and effective training is vital for delivery of appropriate instructional services and such training must include the transmission of tacit knowledge . The present study analyzed the interview data from a sample of 20 graduate instructors who work in Texas Tech’s First -Year Writing Program . Subjects were asked about their preferred conduits for the transfer of information concerning grading other instructional matters . The data indicated that there were significant barriers to information transfer due to personal and institutional factors . Ways to encourage such transfer were discussed . en_US
