FAC/STAFF: First of four Talk About Teaching sessions today

September 22, 2010

 

Today marks the first of four Talk about Teaching discussions centered around the liberal arts in practice. Faculty and staff are invited to attend a discussion of “Community-Based Learning: Practice and Paradox” from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. today (Wednesday) in the Weeks Lounge of Pearsons Hall. The talk will be led by Carol Wickersham, director of community-based learning.  

This discussion will offer an opportunity to consider the philosophy and pedagogy of introducing students into a community as a learning environment.  Consideration will be given to how to help students ethically and effectively interface with a community and how to begin to tailor assignments to fit students' abilities and disciplinary learning goals. 

Please bring your lunch.  Dessert and ice water will be provided.
