Area Studies and Course Design

TSJ5022HS  L0101
Offered in Winter 2015  ·  New Course · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

We all leave doctoral studies as experts in our fields and walk into classrooms full of non-expert students. What now? This course addresses the relationship between subject knowledge and teaching. Topics include issues related to course design and delivery (e.g., syllabus construction, assignments, development of outcomes & objectives) as well as to broader pedagogical issues (e.g., education for [trans]formation, relationships between classroom and context, professional identity). Students will produce a full introductory-level course syllabus and accompanying essay, session notes, example lecture in collaboration with a faculty supervisor. Weekly readings, discussion, and practical assignments.
