Talking About Teaching

12:00 PM  - 1:00 PM
Friday Mar 29, 2013
Jan Serie Center for Scholarship and Teaching (Room 338), DeWitt Wallace Library

Karl Wirth, Geology, will present “A Conversation About Distribution Requirements: What Do We Expect, What Do We Get, and How Can We Do Better?”  At Macalester and many other schools, students complete one or more courses in each of several academic divisions.  How do we define what we expect students to learn in these courses and in what ways can we facilitate their learning to achieve these goals?  Are there threads that unify our vision of such courses? To kick start this conversation, Wirth will share his experience of working with colleagues from several schools to develop a science literacy "concept inventory."  All faculty are welcome.  Lunch will be provided.
