Shepherd, Gene; Romano, Anthony W.
Syllabi, lesson plans, and activities are offered from courses designed to improve the preparation of doctoral candidates bound for college teaching careers. The three graduate-level courses include: (1) Course Design Decisions, which covers evaluating teaching and learning styles, designing syllabi and examinations, selecting textbooks, determining reading and course content, and developing individual lessons; (2) Generic College Teaching Skills, which examines lecturing, group discussions, questioning strategies, models for effective teaching, feedback for learning, and evaluation of teaching; and (3) Culture of the Academic Enterprise, in which students select and discuss topics/issues as they relate to their major field and as they relate to the university setting. This third course examines ethical and moral issues, advising students, organizational policies, academic freedom, tenure, obtaining a teaching position, publishing and grantsmanship, professionalism, and conflict of interest. The materials include excerpts from books and journal articles, assessment instruments such as the Teacher Behaviors Inventory and the Myers-Briggs Type Inventory, and a 43-item reading list. (JDD)
