Pedagogy Circle - What Makes Great Teaching?Westville - SWRZ 142 OR Hammond - CLO 2392199898328
At this meeting we expect to raise questions on what makes teaching great. Is it practical skills? Or moral virtues, like those reflected in the teacher-student relationship? Or, the teacher’s academic skills and competence? Or, the quality of topics discussed? Or, a mix of these? Does the teacher’s power of communication depend on material factors like technology, or love for students? Open to all PNW faculty. The Pedagogy Circle is co-sponsored by the Dept. of History & Philosophy and the Center for Faculty Development & Leadership.
