This course is intended for graduate students and post-doctoral fellows across the disciplines who want to develop as skilled, thoughtful, and confident post-secondary teachers. The goal of this course is to challenge and broaden conceptions of learning and approaches to teaching. Sessions will be literature-informed but activity and discussion-based with an expectation of a high degree of collaboration and participation. The course has been organized in such a way as to balance theory and practice and to support both conceptual and skill development.
As part of the development experience you will assemble teaching dossiers to document your teaching effectiveness and on-going professional development. Through participation in the course, you'll experience and experiment with a broad range of instructional strategies, and, along with the feedback you'll get from the course instructors, you will benefit from self- and peer-assessment techniques to monitor progress.
There are mandatory teaching and teaching observations components of this course that require each participant to observe peers teach and be observed by peers while teaching. Everyone in SGS 901 is responsible for organizing his or her own teaching opportunities for this element of the course.
Observations and teaching components must be completed during the term in which the course runs.
