Speaker Series 2004-2005
Speaker Series is a program that allows the Emory Community
to attend lectures by renowned members of the academic community,
on topics as varied as diversity in the classroom, evolutionary
and scientific theory, and critical thinking. Each year, speakers’
lectures fall into an overarching theme for the yearly series.
Past themes have included "Diversity and Inclusivity in
the Classroom and Writing Across the Curriculum". This
year's theme is "Literate Science/Scientific Literacy",
which aims to promote discussion of the teaching of the natural
and physical sciences. Lectures are open to anyone who wants
to attend, space permitting.
luncheons occur throughout the academic year on a variety of
topics such as team teaching, building a teaching portfolio,
and enhancing teaching with technology. Lunchtime workshops
and discussions are usually held from 12:00-1:30 PM; boxed or
catered lunch is provided by UACT and sponsoring organizations.
These luncheons are open to faculty only.
This year lunch discussions have focused on compiling a needs
assessment for a university-wide faculty development,
teaching, and learning resource center. Luncheon meetings occur
periodically, in months absent other UACT programming.
Teacher Program 2004-2005
Teacher Program is a two and a half day seminar held each May,
to provide faculty at whatever stage of their career with ongoing
training and tools for teaching excellence. Seminars are held
after the end of the spring semester; up to four faculty members
from each school who have demonstrated a deep commitment to
teaching are nominated by their deans.
