Engage with course material you’ve previously studied on a deeper level by enrolling in an HONR:3100 Honors Teaching Practicum. This is an independent study course that allows honors students the opportunity to contribute to their academic community in a professional role and foster a relationship with a professor of their choice. Responsibilities include holding office hours, assisting the professor with course preparation and assignment management, developing teaching aids, and presenting material. Honors students collaborate with an Iowa faculty member to identify responsibilities, schedule commitments, and structure practicum grading criteria.
