EHD 101 - The Art and Science of Teaching

Aligned to the revised Conceptual Framework and the InTASC and ISTE Standards for Teachers, the Art and Science of Teaching integrates content knowledge, pedagogical knowledge, and early field experience. Weekly meetings highlight topics and issues central to 21st century education while overarching themes weave throughout the course: reflective practice, diversity and inclusion, technology integration, differentiated instruction and evidence-based practice.  Substantial, periodic field experience supports student understanding of these topics and strands.  In this writing intensive course, students reflect on their experience and advocate for professional goals through written, oral, and technology-based composition.
