PH 272-276 Supervised Teaching

This experience for the student teacher assumes that the course has been developed and taught in prior terms. Course faculty and the student teaching assistant (TA) work closely to develop and evaluate discussion assignments and associated homework. TAs conduct discussion sessions in courses under the supervision of the course faculty. TAs may be encouraged to present lectures for which they receive detailed feedback on their teaching style. TAs receive instruction on effective teaching techniques, such as how to teach the material, how to run a discussion, how to evaluate student responses, and grading. TA performance will be monitored throughout the term and the supervising faculty will provide appropriate evaluation, coupled with detailed suggestions for improvement.

Teaching Assistants should plan on being available for 13 weeks of a 10-week course, for final course planning prior to the start of the term and student evaluation purposes after the end of the term.

All terms: By arrangement.

(Credit/No Credit grade).

Prerequisites: PhD student, familiarity with the subject matter, and prior approval from TDI’s Center for Education and the supervising faculty member; MS and MPH students must request an exception from the Director of Student Learning to participate.
