Spring 2017 has filled.  We are accepting applicants to the wait list.

This highly successful 8-week course, facilitated by instructional consultants Chas Brua, and Deena Levy, 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 Spring 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.

Applicants accepted into the class will be notified by e-mail prior to the start of the course.
