The course is designed to help prepare students for the challenges of teaching. Teaching requires an understanding of students in social, emotional, physical, and intellectual dimensions; every aspect of a student’s life is integrated in the learning experience of each student. Teaching and learning may take place in physical and/or virtual environments, each of which offer both benefits and challenges. One must consider these factors during the instructional design phase. This course covers both theory and practice of teaching, learning, and course design.
