This course is intended for doctoral 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 which 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. This 0-credit seminar will be graded satisfactory/unsatisfactory and will not incur additional fees. It will meet the first twelve weeks of the semester.
A special permission number is required to register for this seminar. Special permission numbers become available in April.
