This course offers students the opportunity to explore and evaluate the principles and theories of learning-centred teaching in higher education. Through a diverse range of class activities, readings, reflection, and peer-reviewed class facilitation, participants will develop skills in teaching critical thinking; mentorship; and active learning. Students will use research findings and reflection on teaching practice to inform their own teaching development. This course is of particular interest to instructors and teaching assistants, but prior teaching experience in higher education is not a prerequisite.
