Welcome to this research guide for Competency and Proficiency in Teaching. This guide will help you find resources that you can use for your course project and CRA paper.
Competency and Proficiency in Teaching provides practical instruction on effective teaching techniques. The course begins by emphasizing the need for transformational teaching—teaching in which students actually live what they have learned. In this course, the student will learn what transformational teaching is and how it differs from traditional methods. The student will discover how the brain learns as well as the strategies needed to help students not only retain information, but use it in their everyday lives. The course takes the student step-by-step through the process of writing learning objectives, course descriptions, lesson plans, and syllabi. Then, it helps the student use those tools in the classroom.

This short document explains the theory and practices behind the Global University Instructional Design that seeks to approximate the interaction of a classroom professor with students.
