The purpose of the Teaching Academy is to help you understand how learning works so you can develop the competencies needed to create active, learning-centered courses. By the end of the Academy you will have (a) created a list of common misconception in your content area, (b) constructed and used a CAT (classroom assessment technique) to measure student learning, (c) created a lesson plan that addresses a disciplinary or course related misconception, and (d) written test or quiz questions.
