Graduate Student Teaching Skills Certificate
Fundamentals of Course Design
This session will focus on the basics of course design, from course topics and learner analysis to creating a framework for student-centered learning activities.
Classroom Presentation Skills
You don’t want to just stand up at the front of the classroom and read from your prepared notes. You don’t want to show a Power Point and just read from the slides. But how can you make your classroom an interesting place where students will be eager to listen to you and to join in class activities with enthusiasm? Classroom presentation skills are the answer! In this workshop you will learn how to present your content in ways that encourage good listening and participation.
Motivating Your Students
This session will present three practical theories of motivation that can be easily applied to helping students be more engaged in instructional activities in the classroom and online.
Aligning Objectives & Assessments Part 1
In this first of a two-part workshop, participants will practice using taxonomies to classify learning outcomes, construct thorough three-component objectives, and align assessment items with meaningful learning outcomes.
Aligning Objectives & Assessments Part 2
This is a continuation of the previous assessment workshop. Levels of the cognitive domain will be used to create subject-area questions for class discussions, group activities, or student assignments.
This session will provide participants with an array of in-class activities that can transform the classroom from a passive, instructor-based environment to a vibrant, student-centered learning space.
