Teaching: Joys and Challenges of the Greatest Profession by Dr. Todd Zakrajsek
Tuesday, August 26, 2014 from 9:00 AM to 12:30 PM (EDT)
Having the opportunity to be a teacher in higher education is a gift. Having the opportunity to mold future members of any society is an amazing experience. That said, this profession also comes with a multitude of challenges. In this session, we will explore teaching as a “profession”, looking both at why teaching is exceptionally important to everyone and how research on teaching can help all of us to be better at educating others. This session is designed to encourage attendees to think about education, the role of the teacher, and the role of the student in new and fundamentally different ways. Included, of course, will be a few strategies for meeting the challenges of our profession.
