ISE 302 : Understanding Korean Education

Korea is a nation that takes education very seriously. Constant testing and a competitive educational environment lead many on the outside to believe that that system is overly-difficult and categorically dysfunctional. There is method to the perceived madness, however, and students seeking to understand the Korean educational system will benefit greatly from this course. Students will explore the stages of education in Korea, the national standardized testing, and the pressures associated with succeeding in secondary and post-secondary education in Korea. Students will also learn about the social pressures involved in Korean education and how these pressures are often used as the fuel needed for students to succeed not only in school, but in their careers as well.

ISE 303 : Teaching Methodology

The desire to teach is both noble and honorable. But not anyone can simply pick up a subject and begin teaching it. This course will explore the methodology of teaching: those skills essential to becoming an effective teacher. Good communication and organizational skills will be explored, as well as the practical sides of teaching like lesson planning, learning activities, and applied learning techniques. Students will be invited to prepare and teach short lessons on materials both familiar and unfamiliar, and will be critiqued by their instructor and peers as they grow more confident in their skills and prepare to enter a career in education.
