It’s actually pretty common to teach material that might be a bit of a stretch for you.  Perhaps you are teaching a large survey course, and you haven’t kept up with the recent developments in every sub-field of your discipline (nor could you).  Or perhaps a colleague is on sabbatical and you are stepping in for a semester to teach something in an area adjacent to, but not quite in, your area of expertise.  Maybe you want to connect your material to other fields, but of course you aren’t an expert in that other field yourself.  Using ideas from Therese Huston’s excellent book Teaching What You Don’t Know, we’ll discover some strategies for comfortably and confidently teaching material that is not your specialty.

 

This workshop counts towards the Graduate Teacher Certificate or the Certificate in Foundations of Teaching.
