Once applied to teach in a professional program. At the time, had several years of experience teaching at universities, plus course design, composing original exams and assignments, plus experience with essay evaluations and related. Thought I was perfect for this professional program.

They asked one question: “Have you ever had any teacher training?”

The answer: No.

In universities, taken as a given that one must have some teaching ability. No hiring requirement as to having had formal training in pedagogy. Lack of such ability considered to be reflected in student evaluations. Do the students know what they are evaluating?

Didn’t get the position.
