Formal Academic Programs in College Teaching: A New Model for Preparing Future Faculty.
Seidel, Lee F.; Montgomery, Barbara
This paper describes academic programs in college teaching designed for doctoral students at the University of New Hampshire. Programs include a 12-credit program "Cognate in College Teaching," which a doctoral student can add to a Ph.D. program, and the Master of Science for Teachers program, which doctoral students can complete as a dual degree. The Cognate program is designed to develop students' ability to teach at the college or university level in their fields or disciplines. It includes six credits in formal graduate level seminars and six credits in a supervised teaching praxis, upon which the student authors and presents a formal teaching portfolio. The Master of Science for Teachers program, available only as a dual degree with the Ph.D., includes the Cognate program requirements plus: one credit in Issues in College Teaching; eight credits in Research in College Teaching; five credits in approved courses related to teaching and learning in the student's field or discipline; and six credits in College Teaching Praxis. A detailed description of these programs is attached. (MAH)
