Pedagogy is the art and science of teaching and learning. It can look like many things, including but not limited to: ✦designing a course, ✦scaffolding assignments, ✦writing a syllabus, ✦communicating with students, ✦planning classroom activities, ✦providing students with a new way to engage with learning, ✦encouraging critical thinking and intellectual discovery, and ✦assessing learning goals.
Your students may change you as much as or more than you change their thinking, so prepare not just to teach but also to learn. Whether you’re starting a course from scratch, or looking to shake-up your teaching style, we’re here to help you in your pedagogical journey – whatever that may look like.
