This course has three major objectives. First, it will provide guidance on the skills and tactics necessary for effective teaching. Topics to be covered range from the mundane (syllabus preparation) to the mystical (teaching "style"). We'll discuss how each plays an important role in effective teaching. Second, the course will alert students to the vast literature on teaching so that those wishing to further hone their skills will have resources at their fingertips when they later need them. Finally, the course will provide a forum for discussion of issues and problems arising in the students' teaching experiences. Learning from your colleagues is a valuable part of your development as a teacher and this course will encourage you to start that dialogue.
