This highly successful 8-week course, facilitated by instructional consultants Mary Ann Tobin, and Larkin Hood, combines the best elements of a collaborative learning environment with those of a seminar on pedagogy. Discussion of the current literature on teaching and learning, as well as facilitation by instructors from the Schreyer Institute’s experienced faculty, help prepare participants to design and implement both practical and reflective instructional activities.
The Course in College Teaching is a free, non-credit course. In Fall 2017, it is open to any graduate student or post doc with prior teaching experience or teaching assistantship. Interested faculty are invited to participate, as well.
The course will meet at 1:30 - 3:30 p.m. Thursdays from September 7 to November 2.
Applicants accepted into the class will be notified by e-mail prior to the start of the course.
