The Missing Course: Everything They Never Taught You About College Teaching by David Gooblar
Facilitator: Libby Fry
College is changing, but the way we train academics is not. Most professors are still trained to be researchers first and teachers a distant second, even as scholars are increasingly expected to excel in the classroom. Meanwhile, there has been a revolution in teaching and learning over the past generation, and we now have a whole new understanding of how the brain works and how students learn. David Gooblar builds his lessons on the newest findings and years of experience. From active learning strategies to course design to getting students talking, The Missing Course walks you through the fundamentals of the student-centered classroom, one in which the measure of success is not how well you lecture but how much students learn. Along the way, readers will find ideas and tips they can use in their classrooms right away.
Mondays, 1:00pm-2:00pm: 2/24, 3/9, 3/23, 4/6 (Library 378)
