This course takes a hands-on approach to learning, and emphasizes the practical side of teaching and learning with real life examples and workshop style learning modules. Through group discussion, weekly peer feedback and one-on-one consultation, this course offers you a platform to engage deeply with course material, gain confidence in your teaching, and develop a network of teaching colleagues from across campus.
You will have a minimum of two instructional opportunities for a minimum of two total hours of instructing students at a post-secondary level (e.g. lecturing, labs, seminars, tutorials)
You will participate in three or more different teaching experiences. (e.g. lesson planning, building relationships, active learning)
To complete the practicum, you will write three reports on teaching skills development and outcomes (750-1000 words), each of which will:
1) describe the teaching experiences;
2) demonstrate a pedagogical competency; and
3) provide a reflection on each activity.
