  • Course ID: EDU 3113
  • Credit Hours: 3

Competency and Proficiency in Teaching builds upon the theoretical foundation laid by the course Foundations of Educational Psychology, providing practical instruction on effective teaching techniques. The course begins by emphasizing the need for transformational teaching—teaching in which students actually live what they have learned. In this course the student will learn what transformational teaching is and how it differs from traditional methods. The student will discover how the brain learns and the strategies needed to help students not only retain information but also use it in their everyday lives. The course takes the student step-by-step through the process of writing learning objectives, course descriptions, lesson plans, and syllabi. Then it helps the student use those tools in the classroom.
