Fall Teaching Visits – Open Dores
Would you like to watch one of your colleagues teach to see how they manage the classroom, engage students, or address challenging subjects? Do you ever feel like you toil in private to learn how to teach? You’re not alone. On September 5th and 6th, the CFT will host Open Dores: Two Days of Teaching Visit Opportunities.
Too often in higher education we instructors do not have the opportunity to watch and discuss each other’s teaching, and therefore we struggle in what Lee Shulman has called, “pedagogical solitude.” The Center for Teaching has long worked to change this isolation by creating occasions for pedagogical community.
This year we are proud to offer two intensive days of teaching visits. On September 5th and 6th, classes taught by some of the most well-respected and awarded teachers across Vanderbilt’s many disciplines will open their classroom doors to faculty and graduate students.
Check back mid August for a complete list of open classes.
The CFT would like to thank the following 35 faculty for opening their doors during last year’s Open Dores event!
