Nuts and Bolts of Teaching

 

What is a lesson plan?

How do I create a course from scratch? What components of a syllabus are necessary? How do I write test questions? How do I teach online? These are questions that many instructors ask themselves at some point in their teaching career – here is the list of resources that will hopefully answer some of your questions.

Universities and Colleges all have faculty resource webpages that give instruction to their teachers. Universities and colleges with schools of education tend to have the most up to date information on education; schools with longstanding and innovative online and hybrid learning programs tend to have the most up to date information on those learning models. 

The resources found here are excellent and you may find some that we haven't included yet.  If so, please send them to us at  amecoordinator@gmail.com!   Together we can continue to build these resources for all educators!
