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, associate 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 members will discuss how they have utilized their respective teaching centers and how such centers can serve as resources for teachers at all levels.
