Talking About Teaching

12:00 PM  - 1:00 PM

Jan Serie Center for Scholarship and Teaching (Room 338), DeWitt Wallace Library

Beth Severy-Hoven, Classics will present  “Career Development and the Curriculum: Experiments with the Classics Senior Seminar."  For the past four years, the Classics department has been embedding some basic career development work into our Senior Seminar. I will describe why and how we began that experiment and what those components look like within the course as a whole. I'll also do a little bit of thinking out loud about the way we as an institution prepare students for college in the First Year Course and how we might do better in consistently preparing them to leave. Then the floor will be open for a hopefully wide-ranging discussion of curriculum and vocation.  All faculty are welcome.  Lunch will be provided.
