Talking About Teaching

12:00 PM  - 1:00 PM
Friday Feb 8, 2013
Jan Serie Center for Scholarship and Teaching (Room 338), DeWitt Wallace Library

Karin Aguilar San Juan, American Studies, will present  “Am I Addicted to First Years?  Is there a Cure?”  In this talk Aguilar San Juan will share some of her best and worst experiences in teaching First Years.  The "best" includes talking with recent graduates about their own FY experiences (not with her), and then working with those graduates to create innovative assignments and activities for the FYs. The "worst" includes disappointing misinterpretations of her instructions, and her own admittedly unfair impulse to compare each incoming group to the last one.  All faculty are welcome.  Lunch will be provided.
