Explanation of how the course differs from similar GW courses
Step 1 is part of the UTeach model curriculum upon which our new GWTeach program is based. We are the first to introduce this kind of exploratory course in which students, early in their undergraduate program, can explore teaching and career paths that are enhanced by a knowledge of learning and how to help others learn.
