Talking About Teaching

12:00 PM  - 1:00 PM
Friday Dec 7, 2012
Jan Serie Center for Scholarship and Teaching (Room 338), DeWitt Wallace Library

Adrienne Christiansen, Director of the Serie Center, will present "Bloody Teaching Catastrophes:  Learning from What Went Wrong."  We end this semester's Talking About Teaching series with a group discussion about pedagogy and the many ways it can go wrong:  Class discussions that flopped.  Assignment prompts that were not perfectly clear. Handing back tests at the beginning of the class period.  Trying to motivate sleepy, sullen, or unprepared students. Assigning books we had not, ourselves, yet read. Please come celebrate the end of the semester and share informally the "bloody teaching catastrophes" you have experienced in your career as well as the resulting lessons that you learned. All faculty are welcome.  Lunch will be provided.
