Upcoming Faculty Teaching Visit with Keivan Stassun, Professor Physics and Astronomy Tuesday, October 7th

ASTR 205: Principles of Astrophysics

Keivan Stassun is a professor of astronomy and the co-director of the Fisk-Vanderbilt MA-to-PhD Bridge program. In ASTR 205, Keivan Stassun guides upper level undergraduates toward a greater understanding of the origin and evolution of matter as well as the tools and methods of astrophysics. Keivan describes his approach in this class as fairly traditional, using mostly a “chalk talk” approach. In the post-class discussion, we will consider the teaching choices Keivan makes in this course as well as approaches he uses to make his classroom more inclusive. In addition, we will discuss lessons from the Bridge program that can be translated to the undergraduate experience.
