Talking About Teaching

12:00 PM  - 1:00 PM
Friday Nov 9, 2012
Jan Serie Center for Scholarship and Teaching (Room 338), DeWitt Wallace Library

Ellen Holte-Worle, DeWitt Wallace Library, Terry Krier, English, and Martine Sauret, French and Francophone Studies, will present “Unlocking the Secret Room: Enhancing Teaching with Rare Books and Special Collections.”  The proliferation of digital resources, both current and historical, has greatly enhanced undergraduate teaching and learning.  But digital surrogates don't always convey the wonder, inspiration, and research potential that happens when students have the opportunity to interact with and use rare and special materials.  Please come to hear about the Library's special collections and the experiences of two faculty bringing their courses to the Rare Books Room.  We would like to hear your ideas about special materials that could bring to life concepts or content for your students. All faculty are welcome.  Lunch will be provided
