Teaching Outside Your Area of Expertise
Facilitator: Bryce Heatherly, CTL Graduate Fellow, East Asian Languages & Civilizations
Teaching outside one’s area of expertise can sometimes feel daunting and uncomfortable. If strong teaching stems from expertise, how should we facilitate learning in situations where we lack familiarity with the course’s content? In this workshop, we will discuss the challenges of being a ‘content novice’ rather a ‘content expert’ in the classroom, with the aim to generate strategies for effectively handling unfamiliar course material. We will also question some of our assumptions about expertise-based teaching and examine how the experience of teaching outside one’s area of expertise can provide an opportunity to hone teaching practices more broadly.
