Preparing to Teach

This section covers the planning and preparation work that will lay the groundwork for a great course. It’s a good idea to do some of this work far enough in advance of the term so you can:

  • Consider a new approach.
  • Bounce ideas off of colleagues.
  • Identify guests who can visit your course in person or through video.
  • Streamline assignments to support efficient learning.
  • Ask for library help in locating resources.
  • Test out new technology or software.
  • Consider Open Educational Resources (OERs).
  • Prepare materials for teaching assistants.
  • Be less stressed during the semester!
