I am a graduate student helping with the development of a course and will be teaching at least part of it. However, I found out recently that the program wants to offer it as a 1-2 credit course.
It's being sold as a "journal club" format, but requires a lot more outside work than the typical journal club because it's being developed as a sort of flipped classroom style course.
Is the amount of in-class work used to determine credits? Overall work? Something else entirely? I don't want to bring this up to them if it I'm not even understanding it properly.
So, how do you determine how many credits a course is "worth"?
