Is the corestriction map from a subgroup H to a group G, on the first Tate cohomology group H^1, dependent on the chosen transversal of H is G?

No, because the map on cochains is $f\mapsto \sum_{g\in G/H}gfg^{1}$ where $f$ is $H$linear, so that any other coset representative $gh$ would not have any effect. This shows that $cor^G_H$ is independent of the choice of transversal on the level of cohomology. But in that paper of Eunmi Choi, a $\textit{different}$ map on the level of cochains is given (using the bar resolution), which also induces $cor^G_H$ on cohomology, and this $\textit{is}$ dependent on the choice of transversal, as is shown in that paper. But all such images lie in the same cohomology class.
