Program overview

This program will provide you with the opportunity to:

  • Explore basic principles of how people learn, so you can design and deliver courses that best facilitate learning
  • Develop foundational skills in planning course syllabi (outlines), assessments of learning, and linking specific learning experiences and assessments with broader course objectives
  • Discover practices that facilitate learning and build your confidence as an instructor, whether you’re teaching online or in a more traditional classroom
  • Receive supportive and helpful feedback and guidance on your proposed lessons and, for those who participate in the internship, actual classroom experiences from the faculty mentors

Also, for those completing the internship, prepare a portfolio of your work that showcases your qualifications to potential employers.
