Zehnder, Caralyn
Journal of College Science Teaching, v46 n1 Sep 2016
At the authors' public liberal arts institution, biology masters students are required to enroll in BIOL 5050: Teaching Techniques. Course topics include designing effective lectures, assessment, classroom management, diversity in the classroom, and active learning strategies. The impact of this type of training on graduate students' attitudes and knowledge was measured over 4 years. Results show that graduate students reported feeling more comfortable teaching at the end of the course.
