Description

This course is designed specifically for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who are interested in a career in university teaching. The course explores general themes related to the planning of university teaching, from learning theories to evaluation practices. Students will have the opportunity to explore the relationship between the theory and practice of undergraduate teaching. Using a reflection-based approach, this course also provides tools that help students, as future professors, to examine the signature pedagogies of their disciplines, as well as the impact of various teaching strategies they may use throughout their careers. This examination will ultimately help students make more informed decisions in their choice of teaching and learning strategies.
