New Course Helps Teachers Identify Best Practices

Tuesday, October 30, 2018

Coming Spring 2019 from the Center for Graduate Life’s (CGL) professional development team is a new course that equips graduate students who teach, or undergraduates who want to learn, to identify and build effective classroom practices.

“Whether designing a course, planning a syllabus, or creating materials for class, teachers want to use evidence-based best practices to maximize the effectiveness of their teaching and the students' learning,” said Dr. Judith Krauss, CGL Faculty Associate for Graduate Teaching. “This course will cover multiple domains of established psychological theory in the areas learning, memory, motivation, human development, and perception to assist teachers with finding the best practices for their classrooms.”

The course, Creating Classroom Best Practices Using Psychological Theories, was developed in response to student interest. It will meet on Thursdays from 9:30-Noon in Cone 268 beginning Spring Semester. 

More information and registration instructions are on the CGL’s GRAD Courses page.  There is no pre-requisite.
