Teaching and Learning Across Communities

In this two-block introductory course, our goal is to understand how teaching and learning are defined and conceptualized differently in different spaces with different people. During the first block, we explore the sociopolitical forces that influence teacher quality, development, selection, demographics, and agency as we consider what it means to be a teacher and engage in the process of teaching. In the second block, we interrogate the process of learning by examining the learning brain, influences on the brain, and the nature of knowledge itself. Students will spend time observing multiple classrooms in diverse settings. Prerequisite: None. 2 units. Meets the Critical Learning: AIM requirement. (Not offered 2022-23).
