A Professional Development Teaching Course for Science Graduate Students
Baumgartner, Erin
Journal of College Science Teaching, v36 n6 p16-21 May 2007
Although the majority of the teaching faculty at U.S. universities is composed of people who are scientific experts, research has found that most scientists do not have information about effective teaching methods (DeHaan 2005). Traditional lecture-style college science teaching does not reflect knowledge about best teaching practices based upon research about teaching and learning (AAAS 1990). An innovative course at the University of Hawaii provides future science professors with professional development effective science teaching. (Contains 4 tables.)
