Johns Hopkins University is offering an online course called "University Teaching 101". This 6-week-long course will commence from 17th March, 2014 onwards. You can earn a verified certificate at the end of the course.
About the course:
Not too long ago, it was believed that anyone who graduated from a doctoral programme was capable of teaching. In recent years, however, it has become apparent that teaching is not an intuitive behavior. In addition to content, teaching also involves a complex intellectual process, and to develop the "art" of teaching, professors require guidance and support. As the roles and responsibilities of university-level educators have evolved and expanded in recent years, the preparation of emerging university faculty leaders must focus on the development of the knowledge, skills, and strategies for teaching and learning in higher education. This short course is designed to introduce the strategies and exemplars of university teaching skills necessary to meet these new professional demands for teaching at a university level.
Pamela R. Jeffries and David W. Andrews will be the course instructors.
The course will have a work load of 2-4 hours of work / week.
It will be taught in English and subtitles will be available in English.
