Can Students Be Teachers Too?
Flanagan, Dan
This is a report about a program at the University of Massachusetts which allows undergraduate students to devise and teach one-credit courses with appropriate faculty supervision. Students without prior teaching experience must first take two credit hour workshops which train them in teaching skills. The program is coordinated by student affairs staff in the different residential areas of the campus. Though many experimental programs tend to be eliminated when finances are cut for education, this particular program has been popular, and therefore not eliminated, because it seems to exploit resources within the university and because peer teaching appears to be good for both the teacher and the participants. Evaluation is carefully arranged to insure the quality of the courses that are offered. (CD)
