Graduate students present investigations of teaching tools and approaches on May 18th

Posted by on Thursday, April 28, 2016 in Events, News.

Several programs at Vanderbilt help graduate students address questions of teaching and learning within their discipline. Among these are the BOLD Fellows program, sponsored by the Center for Teaching and CIRTL, which focuses on creating and assessing online instructional approaches for use in a Vanderbilt course; the TAR Fellows program, a flagship CIRTL program; and the VIDL Fellows program, which focuses on exploring digital pedagogies for use outside as well as inside formal course structures.

We invite you to attend presentations of the BOLD, TAR, and VIDL Fellows on Wednesday, May 18, 11:30-1:00, in the Library Community Room in the Central Library (map). The event will include four short oral presentations (~11:30-12:15) and a poster session. Please feel free to drop in for the portion of the event that fits your schedule. Refreshments will be provided.
