"The course truly made me think - I love that! There were many times during the readings that I had "a-ha" moments that made me evaluate my teaching and what I can do better."
"This course was beneficial to me as a teacher and a program head. I hope to implement many of the aspects learned in this course into the program and to also support myself and my dance faculty's growth as educators of dance."
"I plan to transition from teaching in the studio/classroom to teaching teacher candidates in a teacher preparation program. I loved learning about pedagogical content knowledge and how I can create a course for young teachers with this in mind. This course has opened my eyes to the programmatic changes that need to occur in our current program and course offerings."
"I really liked the course, since what was covered in several areas was very new to me. It also encouraged me to think about what I have done and currently do while teaching my students - self reflection time that I had not spent on myself before."
"This course helped me broaden my ideas and understandings. I feel I am taking away some great tools to implement in my teaching and future programs. Every reading and assignment was helpful and something that I know I will use or come back to in my career."
"The professors gave me very descriptive and detailed feedback on each of my submitted essays and I am very grateful that they were able to respond to me so in depth."
"The self reflection was incredibly helpful and has allowed me to tweak my teaching. The plethora of resources are invaluable and as they continue to change, I hope to stay current with best practices for the classroom, administration and beyond."
