Fall 2011 AHSE 2199: Teaching and Learning in Undergraduate Science & Engineering: Information About Course: Course Syllabus
This course will examine select topics in teaching and learning in undergraduate science and engineering. The goal of the class is to help participants become effective tutors, teaching assistants, mentors, and future instructors in these fields through a deep theoretical examination of and practica in teaching and learning in STEM courses. In a seminar format, participants will discuss research on best practices in pedagogy and curriculum design, cognition and learning, student classroom experiences, diversity, and assessment. Students will gain experience in instructional design, pedagogy, and assessment, and will develop a teaching portfolio. While the course materials discussed are largely on research in undergraduate science and engineering education, the course will touch on issues in mathematics education, and many course concepts can be extended to mathematics and technology instruction at the K-16 level.
