This course takes a practical approach to teaching development and as such, much of the content will be driven by you, the learners. As part of the requirements of this course, you will be an observer and a facilitator in the teaching context. Class meetings will address teaching and learning issues, topics, and concerns that have been identified by the class. You will be expected to come prepared to contribute to the learning of our community by participating in and facilitating discussions of challenges faced in higher education. As this course is the final requirement for participants in the University Teaching Certificate, it will be expected that you have an understanding of the basic principles of higher education. The course also provides you with the opportunity to build on and apply information learned in other courses in the UTC to your own teaching. *This course is only open to students enrolled in the University Teaching Certificate Program.
