AY 2021-22, offered twice: Foundations of Teaching in Higher Education: Scholarship, Reflection and Innovation CTAL6007

Course Description: 

This course provides an important intellectual and practical grounding for your work, first as a teaching assistant, and later as an independent scholar and teacher or other professional in the field. The course runs for 12 weeks from the end of September to mid December and engages you in discussion, collaboration, and experimentation in areas such as:

-linking your development as scholars to your development as teachers
-taking your first steps as a new teacher, lecturer and discussion leader
-learning the fundamentals and key concepts in learning-centered teaching and assessing students
-planning your first teaching sessions and courses
-using learning-centered approaches in your teaching, including e-learning tools and strategies

A key feature of this course is that it is a collaborative learning environment in which you are invited to co-construct and co-teach some of the sessions as a peer teacher. The course thus provides an opportunity to practice teaching and to experiment with various teaching strategies. “Teaching in Higher Education” is an elective, pass/fail course open to all CEU doctoral students and visiting doctoral students.

Participation in this course also forms an ideal foundation for various other short courses at the Center for Teaching and Learning which you may wish to take this academic year (winter and spring) or during later stages of your doctoral program.
