New A4 Mini - Register Now!!!

48-332: Architecture Explorations: Teaching and Learning (6 units)
Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10:30 – 11:50 a.m. (CFA 213)
In this course, students will learn about effective strategies for teaching architecture and the built environment.   Topics include the cognitive differences between novices and experts, instructional techniques, and goal alignment. As part of the coursework, each student will implement these teaching strategies to design and teach a lesson.  Elements of developmental psychology, learning theories, and classroom practices will inform the architectural education lesson.  Teaching and learning techniques can be generalized for communication with clients, practice, and the community.
 
* Students in the course are not guaranteed a summer job, however, they will have the advantage of being more prepared to teach if they are hired for summer camps.
