Teaching and Learning in Higher Education

EDA 6302 Teaching and Learning in Higher Education

This course challenges doctoral students to learn about faculty work in higher education, particularly teaching and learning in college and university contexts. After a brief overview of the history and philosophy of higher education, with a focus on faculty roles, students will have an opportunity to demonstrate their teaching skills for college contexts, including lectures and discussion sessions. They will also design a syllabus for an actual course that they hope to teach and assemble a teaching portfolio suitable for faculty roles. Students will reflect on a variety of theories and models to develop their personal philosophies of teaching in higher education contexts.
