Preparing to Teach
Preparing to step into the classroom at the beginning of a semester requires instructors to consider many issues that impact both the teaching approach and a course’s learning activities. Example considerations include developing course content, organizing content in a manageable way, and choosing strategies that will align assessment and evaluation methods with course objectives.
