New Course Offering from TAP
The Graduate School-New Brunswick, in association with the Carnegie Academy for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, is offering a new course in the Fall 2007 semester, College Teaching II. The course is intended for graduate students who have at least two semesters of college teaching experience or who have taken Introduction to College Teaching. The purpose of the class is to help students design a course they might someday teach and develop materials for it, including a syllabus, assignments, and lesson plans. Topics to be covered will include establishing goals for a course, content delivery (including lecturing, class discussions, and active learning), assignment design, and setting course policies. The 0-credit seminar will be graded satisfactory/unsatisfactory and will not incur additional fees. It will meet the first twelve weeks of the semester on Wednesdays from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. on the College Avenue Campus. Please email or call 848-932-7747 for a special permission number.
