Supervised Teaching in Information Studies (INF 398T) is a pedagogy course designed to prepare doctoral students for that oft-neglected part of their work as faculty members. Students will produce teaching statements and instructional design exemplars with which to augment their professional web sites. This course will also cover professional acculturation, including how to balance research and teaching in those critical first three years. The course provides those working on teaching internships with a theoretical foundation on adult learning theory, instructional design, and course management. Finally, it is one way to meet the university requirement for skill development needed to teach undergraduate courses.
