Introduction To The Teaching Profession

OVERVIEW

Teaching is about inspiring and empowering students to realize their potential. If this sounds like something you’d like to do, this course is for you. We’ve designed this course to explore what it takes to be a teacher, not just in the classroom, but in many fields—education, healthcare or even corporate. You’ll learn about the history, purposes, issues, ethics, laws and regulations, roles and qualifications of teaching. As you work through the course, you’ll participate in a minimum of 20 hours of guided observations and field experience in different settings. This will help you identify what teaching career path interests and suits you best, as well as effective learning environments. You’ll also build a working portfolio throughout your program, as you learn about leadership and skills opportunities offered in participated in CTSO activities.
