Certificate Program in College Science Teaching


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Departments and Programs

The WMU Certificate Program in College Science Teaching consists of a sequence of three 3-credit hybrid courses. It is intended to enhance the skills of individuals who wish to improve as instructors of science in a college setting. The program is open to current graduate students in science departments and to college-level instructors and faculty of science elsewhere. It is offered in a hybrid format to accommodate the needs of individuals who have fixed time commitments that would otherwise prevent them from pursuing this professional development opportunity. Online discussions in each course will provide participants with the opportunity to share and learn from one another. The first course in the sequence (SCI 6185) is a standalone course that can be taken by anyone wishing to become familiar with the basics of how to teach college level science. It will not presuppose participants are currently teaching science. The second and third (SCI 6186 and SCI 6187) are advanced courses on curriculum and assessment and the theory and practice of college science teaching for those who wish to deepen their understanding.
