The Craft of Facilitating provides current and future undergraduate Course Facilitators a creative and challenging environment in which to explore and refine how you design and facilitate a course. This Education fieldwork opportunity gives you practice in the design, delivery and assessment of peer-facilitated courses, along with a structured means of developing and reflecting upon your approach to all of these dimensions of peer-teaching.
Students in Craft of Facilitating will...
• explore the process of course design.
• learn practical techniques for creating a syllabus and lesson plans.
• consider what concepts like authority, motivation and accountability mean in a peer-led classroom.
• develop a variety of approaches to promoting student engagement and participation.
• practice and hone presentation and facilitation skills.
• provide and receive honest, supportive, constructive feedback.
By the end of the semester you will have a Course Portfolio or Course Proposal Portfolio to showcase your work.
The Craft of Facilitating is a 2- or 3-unit p/np Field Studies course. Students planning a course and preparing to facilitate earn 2 units (= 90 hours). Students who are concurrently facilitating a course receive additional credit for the time they are spending conducting their own class, and receive 3 units (= 135 hours) for Craft of Facilitating. The course can be used towards the Minor in Education Field Studies requirement and has no prerequisites.
