“Teaching and Learning Workshop” series 

About the series

“Teaching and Learning Workshop” is a series of Friday afternoon discussion sessions, providing a forum for the exchange of ideas about teaching and learning. A guest presenter begins each session with a brief description of some teaching strategy and then invites questions and comments. The sessions have focus, but informal discussion constitutes the primary mode of discourse.

4 per year - 2 each semester
