The following list provides currently approved courses for inclusion in the certificate. You may ask faculty to propose courses to the steering committee for review and inclusion in the list of those that meet these requirements. To do so, faculty must submit a syllabus and Course Approval Form to Shirley Yu.
You may also request one-time approval for specific courses in their own program, without the instructor needing to propose the course for ongoing inclusion.
College Teaching (ESEPSY 7404)
These courses vary according to the needs and interests of the offering departments, but must be rigorous, academic examinations of teaching in the field. Classes designed only as practica for GTAs are not sufficient. They must include a broader look at teaching, course and curriculum design, and/or the “pedagogical content knowledge” needed by university faculty in that discipline or interdisciplinary area. When no specific course is available to meet the requirement of a disciplinary teaching course, students may be allowed to enroll in independent studies within their discipline (see guidelines for an independent study).
These experiences will vary according to the needs and interests of the faculty mentor, but must be rigorous, multi-faceted reviews and discussion of the student’s own teaching. This may occur within the context of a GTA assignment or with the student assisting in teaching the faculty mentor’s classes. A syllabus or contract describing, at least, the minimum expected interactions should be drafted at the start of the experience, so mutual expectations are clear. Examples of syllabi may help provide some guidance in creating this course. See the guidelines for a mentored experience for additional assistance.
If a mentored teaching experience course already exists, faculty need only submit a Course Approval Form and upon approval, the course will be included on the list of those which meet this requirement. If none exists, faculty may create this course and submit the Course Approval Form for review.
Elective courses can be taken from those offered in the Graduate School and other units. A second discipline-based course in an appropriate discipline may serve as an elective, if the unit offers more than one class or chooses to open its courses to non-majors.
Use the Ohio State course catalog search to see when courses are offered.
