Preparing to Teach a Class for the First (or Second) Time
Teaching a class for the first time and preparing to turn it into a regular offering can be daunting. This session, jointly sponsored by the Center for Teaching and Learning and the Curriculum Committee of the College, has a very practical aim: How can you create a class focused on making sure students get what you want them to get? The program will help instructors at any level think about the key questions for teaching a new class and use those answers to generate a prospectus that can be posted online in Courses-In-Touch to help students find the right class for them.
The program is not required of anyone planning to submit a course to the curriculum committee but intended to clarify the types of questions that will help instructors teach a strong course and in turn make it easier to submit to the committee.
