Panel to outline teaching center successes
Incorporating the Needs of Schools in a Teaching and Learning Center” is
a panel discussion, slated for Wednesday, Oct. 5, at 4 p.m. in the
Carlos Museum Reception Hall, that will feature two teaching center
directors and two faculty members discussing how pedagogical needs
are addressed in a university-wide teaching and learning center.
Sponsored by the University Advisory Council on Teaching
(UACT), the panel will include faculty from Stanford University (Ronald
Barrett, assistant professor
of anthropological sciences) and the University of Michigan (Ifeoma Nwankwo,
assistant professor in the Center for African American Studies and the Department
of English) as well as Constance Cook, director of the Center for Research
on Teaching and Learning (CRLT) at Michigan, and Michele Marincovich,
vice provost and director of the Center for Teaching and Learning at Stanford.
The directors will outline the frameworks for teaching
centers and give examples of successful programming. The two faculty
will discuss how they have
utilized their respective teaching centers and how such centers can serve
as resources for teachers at all levels.
