Talking About Teaching

12:00 PM  - 1:00 PM
Friday Nov 2, 2012
Jan Serie Center for Scholarship and Teaching (Room 338), DeWitt Wallace Library

John Cannon, Physics, will present "Integrating Research into the Classroom."  Bridging the gap between scholarship and teaching is challenging.  Is there a model that combines both?  Cannon will discuss an upper level astronomy course where a major research component forms part of the curriculum.  In this course, students acquire and analyze scientific data; results have been disseminated at national conferences and in peer-reviewed journals.  The discussion should generate new ideas for course design that encourage faculty in diverse disciplines to undertake similar endeavors.  All faculty are welcome.  Lunch will be provided.
