Junior Faculty: Visit the classroom of Mark Wollaeger on February 18
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.
Mark Wollaeger, Professor of English
ENG: 116W: Introduction to Poetry
The main objectives of this course are to widen student’s knowledge of poetry, to help them become close readers of poetry, and to help develop critical writing skills.
Date: Monday, February 18th
Class Time: 8:45-10:00 am
Location: Calhoun 219
Pedagogies: Discussion, Mini-lecture
Facilitator: Nancy Chick
Discussion Location: Benson 414
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.
