Please view my sample lessons to get a feel for my teaching philosophy and style.
TE 150 is an introductory Teacher Education/Educational Psychology course. It is part of the Teacher Education program at Michigan State University, but also welcomes students from throughout the University to read, talk, and learn about learning, development, motivation and culture. Typically this class is mostly first and second year students. The following offer a sampling of some of the lessons I have taught. Please see my syllabus, schedule, and Global Learning Project information from Spring 2018. The first portion of the class covers various theories of learning (behaviorism, cognitivism, etc). This is my lesson from Spring 2018 that introduces the Information Processing Theory of Learning.
The Capstone Portfolio Course is the culminating course for the Master of Arts in Education and Master of Arts in Educational Technology degree programs within the College of Education at Michigan State University. This course (CEP 807/ED 870) provides students - mostly working professionals within the field of eduction - the opportunity to build a web-based portfolio that acts as a reflective opportunity to collect and showcase work and what they have learned. The course is designed so that students create a page every week or so, receive ungraded feedback from peers and instructors and then have a chance to make changes multiple times before grades are given. This course personifies the type of cyclical work-feedback-revise-grade cycle that I wish could be a norm in all learning environments.
