Episode 11 – Todd Giorgio on Time-Efficient Teaching
This episode begins a new series here on the podcast, a series focusing on time-efficient teaching. Faculty at a research university like Vanderbilt must balance a number of competing demands on their time, including teaching, research, and service. For this series, we’re interviewing senior faculty members at Vanderbilt and asking them to share ways they teach effectively while making good use of their time.
In this episode, we feature an interview with Todd Giorgio, professor and chair of biomedical engineering. In the interview, Todd describes time-efficient ways to approach office hours, in- and out-of-class assignments, and class preparation.
