Department of Anthropology, University of Texas
SYLLABUS (and related info) Contacting others in the class Useful Anthro Links Information about Anthropology Other courses in Anthropology Portfolio Assignment In-Class observation assignment
This course is designed to provide you with information and experiences to make you a better teacher and teaching assistant. You will prepare a teaching portfolio -- a set of documents that can be used if you choose to apply for teaching jobs. We will also work towards developing transferable skills in teaching and public speaking. Many graduate students in anthropology will choose careers other than college teaching, so the skills emphasized in this class will be of use in any field, particularly those involving organizing information and communicating it to other people.
The class meets Thursdays, 9-12 am, in EPS 1.128. Wilson's office hours are Tuesdays and Thursdays, 4-5 p.m., and by appointment.
