CFT 25th Anniversary: Join us this afternoon!
Join us this afternoon as we kick off celebrations of the Center for Teaching’s 25th anniversary with a keynote talk by Ken Bain, founding director of the Center and author of What the Best College Teachers Do, with opening remarks by Chancellor Zeppos. Bain’s keynote How to Foster Deep Learning will address how we create learning environments that will have a sustained, substantial, and positive influence on the way our students will subsequently think, act, and feel. Bain’s keynote will be followed by a champagne reception. This event will be held in the Board of Trust room in the Student Life Center at 4pm. It’s not too late to RSVP for this event.
Then on tomorrow, we’re hosting a half-day symposium looking ahead to the future of teaching at Vanderbilt, featuring faculty panelists Cecelia Tichi, Cynthia Paschal, and Marshall Eakin. Faculty, students, and staff are invited to discuss a set of themes the CFT has identified as likely to affect teaching and learning at Vanderbilt over the next five years: economic challenges, changing technologies, and social responsibilities. The event begins at 9:10am on the 2nd floor of the Commons. RSVP for this event.
We hope to see you later today and tomorrow!
