Class description

In this seminar we will learn the basics of teaching. We will also use writing as a method to learn how to reflect upon our learning about pedagogy. By practicing different methods of instruction and by reading and writing vigorously about what we are learning, we will be able to facilitate groups, teach one-to-one, and discuss learning styles. The outcome of this seminar will be for each student to have a developed plan to transmit his or her knowledge to people outside of the university. If possible students should plan on registering for a spring quarter service learning experience.
