EDUC 7773 College Teaching and Learning (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

This course begins with an overview of the scholarship on the pedagogical foundations of higher education in order to explore research on pedagogy in colleges and universities. We examine how college learning is assessed and how post-secondary teaching is evaluated. We consider how the markers and politics of identity inform teaching and learning in American higher education. Classroom climate issues and studies, learning and the assumption of whiteness, the objectives of college teaching and learning and their critiques, and evaluation and assessment practices are explored. Students develop and implement a teaching philosophy via the development of a college teaching portfolio.
