ALS 6015: Teaching in Higher Education

Monday, January 25, 2016

Are you interested in preparing for the academic job search by writing a teaching philosophy statement, comparing institutional types, designing a syllabus, and learning how to better support and assess student learning? If so, consider taking ALS 6015: The Practice of Teaching in Higher Education (2 credits) this spring.

Sections of this class are being offered on Wednesdays, 2:30-4:25 p.m. and Thursdays, 4:00-6:00 p.m., starting January 27. This course is most appropriate for graduate students in the latter half of their program.

After reviewing course information at the Center for Teaching Excellence website, contact David Way at for a permission code. Please consider your schedule carefully before registering, as the practical nature of assignments does not permit S/U registration or auditing.

Interested postdocs are also able to enroll in this course through the Extramural Study program in the School of Continuing Education and Summer Sessions. If you are a postdoc with any questions about your exact benefit status with regards to course enrollment, please contact
