Episode 20 – Teaching First-Year Students

Posted by on Friday, March 19, 2010 in Podcast.


In this episode, we feature a panel discussion with Mark Dalhouse, Faculty Head of East House and Director for the Office of Active Citizenship and Service, Joseph Wehby, Associate Professor of Special Education, and Roark Luskin, Class of 2012.

During the discussion, panelists answer two questions: Should Vanderbilt faculty and staff try to engage first-year students in critical thinking about their own ethics, values, and culture? Or should we give that up as a lost cause and focus on more practical matters?
