Talking About Teaching

12:00 PM  - 1:00 PM
Friday Dec 6, 2013
Jan Serie Center for Scholarship and Teaching (Room 338), DeWitt Wallace Library

Michael McGaghie, Music, will present  “‘This Sounds A Lot Better’:  Moving Chairs, Assigning Seats, and Student Learning in the Classroom."  Here's a choral conducting axiom -- carefully placed chairs and well-designed seating chart can make a remarkable positive impact on rehearsals and performances.  Let's ask, then -- how do our students fill the spaces of our myriad classrooms?  How does the students' physical arrangement in the room affect their learning?  Come to hear one conductor's perspectives, and then stay to discuss how and why you shape the seating in your own classroom.  All faculty welcome.  Lunch will be provided.
