Two institute-wide graduate level electives are offered in college teaching. ADE 622 College Teaching is offered in the fall, and ADE 623 College Teaching: Practicum is offered in the spring. Students from all majors are welcome and can take one or both classes, and in any order. There are no pre-requisites. Both courses build a strong foundation for students interested in teaching at the college level. We welcome faculty—as learning partners—to join the class and participate in the discussion on teaching and learning.
