What the Best College Teachers Do (4-session workshop)
Thursday, September 26, 2013 from 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM (CDT)
"You don't teach a class. You teach a student."
Bring your successes, bring your challenges, and brainstorm with your colleagues using the collective wisdom of hundreds of the top faculty in the nation. Inspired by Ken Bain’s book, What the Best College Teachers Do (Harvard, 2004), this workshop explores what works and what doesn’t in promoting authentic learning for students.
The Center for Innovation and Teaching Excellence presents this workshop of four face-to-face meetings and an ongoing discussion concerning best teaching practices.. This provocative dialogue—intended for both veteran Columbia faculty and those brand new to our community—will examine what we really do when we teach, and how we know if we’re actually helping our students learn.
This workshop series will meet in-person from 12-2pm in the Faculty Center (600 S. Michigan Ave, 8th Floor) on the following dates:
