New Class: HIST 796--Lecture Development for Teaching

Instructor: Dr. Susan Schulze

Semester: Spring 2014


This 1-credit course will meet on Monday evenings when Colloquium is not meeting (see dates below).  It is targeted towards students who hope to teach at the college (or community college) level, though of course is open to others as well.  The sessions will target the production of a portfolio of lectures geared to preparing students for the first semester of employment as faculty in the college or university setting. The portfolio, to be produced by the student, will contain at least 2 finished lectures along with a complement of lecture drafts.  The combination of lectures and drafts would provide a broad framework for a full semester of the typical introductory-level or art history course.  In the development of the lectures and drafts for the portfolio I would like to accommodate at least one opportunity for each student to practice delivering a lecture in real-time. 


Students wishing to take the course should contact Nicole Roth ([log in to unmask]). The course number is for independent study.


The course will meet on the following dates, from 5:30 to 7:00
