Faculty: Visit the classroom of Sheri Shaneyfelt on March 26

Posted by on Monday, March 18, 2013 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.

Sheri Shaneyfelt, Senior Lecturer of Art History

HART 111: History of Western Art II

This course is designed as an introductory survey of Western art history from the Renaissance to the Modern period, considering primarily painting, sculpture, and architecture. Please note that the chronological and thematic range of material covered will vary somewhat depending on the instructor. HART 111 is intended to provide a historical understanding of the major artistic movements within the Western visual tradition, and to encourage students to develop a literate and critical eye. Attention is given to works of specific artists, as well as cultural factors that affect the visual arts from production to reception.

Class Time: 11:00 am – 12:15 pm
Location: Cohen 203
Audience: All

Junior Faculty Only (tenure or non-tenure track) and CICT Participants



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 Cynthia Brame.
