Winter 2018:

ARHU789A - This 1-credit practicum is a hands-on seminar in how to build a course from the ground up. Graduate students will design an original 300-level or higher course based on their own area of expertise. We will work through course conceptualization, objectives and learning outcomes planning, materials gathering, syllabus writing, assessment policy and procedures, and lesson planning. A supportive, collaborative environment is key to a successful process and product, so we will actively use peer feedback throughout the course.
