The McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning

How do you design a new course that will be compelling to students? How do you refresh an existing course? What opportunities does the new General Education designation, Culture and Difference, offer to faculty as they propose new courses? At this workshop, we will explore ways to organize a course around questions, problems, and puzzles, and write a course description that makes clear what’s at stake in taking the course. Lunch will be served. RSVP Required.

Facilitators:
James A. Dun, Assistant Dean of the College, Office of the Dean of the College. Lecturer in History and Freshman Seminars.
Rebekah P. Massengill, Associate Dean, Office of the Dean of the College.
Katherine Stanton, Interim Director of the McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning. Senior Associate Director, Teaching Initiatives and Programs for Faculty.
