EFOP 3135 - SEMINAR IN COLLEGE TEACHING
The course in intended to provide a practicum-like experience for graduate students in the professions and disciplines who are teaching or expect to teach in higher education. Challenging topics include: analyzing and critiquing current syllabuses of class members; structuring the curriculum; teaching for understanding; process and content; teaching and learning in groups; becoming a dialogic classroom; encountering and responding to contentious discussion; and evaluating learning. Although topics will be considered conceptually through readings, the primary curriculum will develop as members of the class present specific issues from their emergent work. Participants will have the opportunity to explore their beliefs in teaching and learning as they consider a web between themselves, their subject and their students, in order to help their students learn how to weave a world for themselves.
