Team-Teaching 101: A Nuts and Bolts Workshop to Planning a Team-Taught Course
December 2, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pmFree
Led by Sophia Acord, Delia Steverson, and Steve Noll
Have you ever thought about teaching a course with a colleague from a different discipline? Through team-teaching, faculty can create innovative new courses for students that tie together different ways of looking at a topic and demonstrate the value of interdisciplinary inquiry. Instructors also benefit from collaborating by exploring their interests, learning new tools and areas of work, and seeing the broader impacts of their disciplines in other fields. But translating collegial conversations into a cohesive course, particularly with a partner from a very different discipline, requires some creativity. This workshop draws on the experience of over 15 UF team-taught courses made possible through the Center for the Humanities and the Public Sphere’s Interdisciplinary Team-Teaching Grant to show you how two heads can be better than one.
This nuts and bolts workshop is organized with the UF Center for Teaching Excellence and follows from the Team Teaching from Classroom to Gallery workshop. Team Teaching 101 will walk you through the steps of preparing a team-taught course. Start planning your syllabus and the division of labor in your classroom. And develop a flyer to recruit students into your exciting collaboration!
