Junior Faculty: Visit Jeffrey Tlumak’s research methods class at next week’s teaching visit

Posted by on Monday, October 15, 2012 in Events.

A Teaching Visit involves a small group of faculty who observe a colleague’s class (on a selected day), followed by an hour of conversation about what was observed, particularly shared teaching challenges. The Center for Teaching has hosted Teaching Visits for many years and they have been among the most productive and helpful events we offer. They are wonderful opportunities for Vanderbilt teachers to observe directly and then discuss various forms of teaching across the disciplines, building collegiality and expertise around inquiries into teaching and learning.

Jeffrey Tlumak, Associate Professor of Philosophy

PHIL 301: Teaching & Research Methods (Graduate Proseminar)

In their first semester of graduate study, all graduate students must pass a two credit department seminar on teaching and research methods. This course is designed both to develop the teaching abilities of graduate students and to instruct them in the discipline’s research methods, interdisciplinary connections, and resources for research support as they begin research duties.

Date: Tuesday, October 23rd
Class Time: 11:00 am – 1:00 pm, followed by a 1hr discussion
Location: Furman 106
Audience: Junior Faculty
Pedagogies: Engaged Discussion
Facilitator: Nancy Chick
Discussion Location: TBA


If you’d like to attend this visit, please:

  • Click the “register now” link
  • Complete the registration information
  • When the visit approaches, you will receive an email reminder
  • If you register but find that you are unable to attend, please let us know. Please be mindful that space is limited.

We endeavor to organize visits across the university in various disciplines, but visitors do not have to be in the same discipline as the course they are observing. Indeed, many faculty members have found it helpful to encounter teaching styles and strategies different than their own, which they can then discuss with colleagues after the observation and adapt to their own use.

If you are interested in hosting a Teaching Visit or have any other questions about the program, please contact the CFT’s Joe Bandy.
