The Apprenticeship in Teaching (AT) Program is designed to help graduate students and other developing teachers become more reflective and skilled instructors, informed by the research on teaching and learning in higher education, and familiar with pedagogical best practices.Georgetown University, Center for New Designs in Learning and Scholarship, Apprenticeship in Teaching Program
During my graduate work, I took the opportunity to hone my teaching craft by participating in an elective certificate offered by the Center for New Designs in Learning and Scholarship at Georgetown University. The certificate included four required workshops and two electives, plus demonstrations of learning in the form of six authentic teaching tasks. See below to explore these tasks.
The Workshops I attended were:
- Introduction to Teaching Resources (Core)
- Due to the Covid-19 pandemic in Spring 2020 I was unable to attend this course but received an alternate assignment from the program director.
- Syllabus: A Conceptual Tool for Course Design (Core)
- Assessment and Grading (Core)
- Reflective Teaching in Practice (Core)
- Teaching Portfolio (Elective)
- Effective Classroom Interaction (Elective)
- Universal Design for Learning (Elective)
- Book Club: A Perfect Mess: The Unlikely Ascendancy of American Higher Education by David F. Labaree (Elective)
