SF State Experimental College

exco teacher in actionThe San Francisco State Experimental College (Exco) provides undergraduate students with an opportunity to design and teach a course based upon their own interests.  Exco student-teachers join a community of students who, together, deepen their understanding of the learning process through teaching other undergraduates who share their passions for the course topic. 

Through a guided process of monitored syllabi development, student recruitment, peer mentorship, and weekly meetings, Exco student-teachers authentically develop skills in leadership, organizing, communication, research, and discussion-facilitation as well as discovering the joys of the creative process of lesson plan development.
