Mistaken Assumptions That Mislead Beginning Teachers
Faculty Director, Center for Teaching Excellence, University of South Carolina

"Teaching is a gift. The importance and relevance of content will be intuitively obvious to students. Teach the class you’d like to take." Such assumptions are mistaken and can make it difficult to teach effectively. Join us to discuss these and other assumptions and get on the right track for teaching excellence.
