Junior Faculty: Visit the classroom of Steve Buckles on March 13

Posted by on Friday, March 8, 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.

Steve Buckles, Senior Lecturer of Economics

ECON 100: Macroeconomics

The role of scarcity and prices in allocating resources. National income, fluctuations in unemployment and price level, monetary and fiscal policy

Date: Wednesday, March 13th
Class Time: 2:10 pm – 3:00 pm
Location: Wilson 103
Pedagogies: Lecture, Discussion, Clickers
Facilitator: Joe Bandy
Discussion Location: Wilson 103

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.
