If you are a chef, or a culinary professional, who is interested in pursuing the teaching of culinary arts, then this course is for you!
Or maybe you are currently an adjunct instructor, or even a new, full-time secondary or post-secondary culinary arts faculty member; regardless, I believe this course will even provide you with some of the tools and techniques that are essential for being an effective teacher from day one in each of your classes or labs!
This online course is a study of the methods, tools and techniques employed in facilitating the teaching and training of culinary arts.
The knowledge and skills necessary for the professional role of an instructional specialist, such as a teacher, facilitator, or trainer, are emphasized throughout this course.
Concentration is placed on the preparation and the process of delivering effective teaching and training activities for both formal and informal teaching situations, including classes, courses, workshops, seminars, and presentations / demonstrations.

Your Teaching Career?
Your Teaching Journey…
Many instructors begin their teaching career with a considerable amount of subject knowledge and limited pedagogical training. Teaching a class for the first time can be a daunting task for anyone. Some individuals are able to adapt fairly well to the requirements of teaching, while others become disenchanted with the many responsibilities and demands and decide to leave the profession. Other instructors who might have been able to excel in the classroom never reach their full potential because of limited preparation in teaching methodology and classroom management.
This course was designed to be a resource for both new and “seasoned” culinary instructors. The course addresses the many issues related to student learning and instructor effectiveness including lesson plan development, suggestions for successful lectures, active learning techniques, motivation and student engagement strategies, methods for facilitating discussions, assessment, tests and evaluation practices, grading tools and rubrics, classroom management, and so much more!
