Celebration of Teaching Spotlight: Campus Collaborations

Posted by on Friday, April 27, 2012 in Events.

The work of the Center to support teaching and learning at Vanderbilt takes many shapes and durations, ranging from single conversations to multi-year collaborative projects.  In partnership with many other units across campus, we build bridges within the university, bringing together people with shared visions for teaching and learning who might not otherwise recognize the interests they have in common.

John Sloop, Senior Associate Dean, College of Arts and Sciences, will be a featured speaker at the Celebration of Teaching on Wednesday, May 2nd. John has been a workshop panelist for the CFT in the past, and this year he served a mentoring role for our Junior Faculty Teaching Fellows. He is also co-leading the Chancellor’s Committee on Social Media and the Internet, which is exploring ways that technology can (and perhaps should) enhance the teaching mission of the university. John will share some thoughts on the ways that teaching is often more effective and enjoyable when approached collaboratively.
