Teaching What You Don’t Know

  • 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
  • Via Zoom

Event Description

Oftentimes, in our AI teaching responsibilities or early teaching careers, we may be called upon to teach content outside of our area of expertise.  Maybe you are an ecologist assisting a microbiology course for the first time. Or a you are a literature scholar teaching writing for the first time.  These teaching opportunities can be very exciting and cause a certain amount of uncertainty and anxiety.  “What if students ask me a question I can’t answer?” “How do I maintain authority and confidence in the classroom space?”  This Foundations in Teaching workshop will draw from the ideas of Therese Huston in her book Teaching What You Don’t Know and highlight teaching strategies to help you maximize every teaching opportunity.
