Woodsworth College – Teaching in Higher Education (THE500)
“In THE500, senior PhD candidates and post-doctoral fellows will improve their teaching practice by becoming more knowledgeable about the ways in which students learn and about different teaching theories and styles. Course participants will experience and take part in a variety of teaching situations, from small group work to more formal lecture sessions. Ample opportunity will be given to participants to reflect on the course as it progresses and on their own teaching and learning experiences.
THE500 is provided free of charge, and upon completion, graduate students will receive an official letter from the university confirming their completion of THE500, with a brief description of its content. The course itself will not appear on your School of Graduate Studies transcript.” – Woodsworth College, 2018
