EDU 653 Teaching in Higher Education If you have ANY QUESTION PLEASE ASK....... 5 pages please plus cover and reference Focus of the Final Project As we've learned throughout the course, an educator's job is not simply to train students to recall facts and/or parrot ideas. An educator must create an environment conducive to critical thinking, so that the classroom facilitates learning, not merely memorization and recitation. The Final Project is your opportunity to show that you have a deep and meaningful understanding of the concepts covered in this course in a way that is well suited to your intelligences and talents. You can produce a Word Document or you can come up with your own way to demonstrate your understanding of the demands and implications of teaching and learning in higher education. Instructions In this course we have considered different learning styles and diverse student populations; explored effective pedagogical methods as well as protocol; assessment; and the scholarship of teaching. After watching the video “ 8 Things I Wish I Knew Before College ,” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5wcQGXQEcTQ reflect on the Course Learning Outcomes: Analyze adult learning styles in developing effective instructional strategies. Identify effective pedagogical techniques in higher education teaching. Apply knowledge of protocol, assessment, and the scholarship of teaching to a diverse student population. Apply your learning from the course to create “A Survival Guide” that addresses the letter (i.e., procedure and practice) and the spirit (i.e., theory and ethics) of teaching in a higher education setting. Feel free to creatively answer each question in a Word document. However you choose respond, be sure to provide access to your instructor by uploading all the necessary files.
