Teaching Workshops

These workshops focus on practical, concrete strategies for common teaching tasks, challenges, and opportunities.  These sessions draw on research-based best practices from the literature on teaching and learning and help participants consider ways to apply those best practices in their teaching.

Teaching Workshops are typically a mix of presentation, large group discussion, small group activities, and times for individual reflection.


Spring 2016 Teaching Workshops


Travel Abroad LogoWorkshop: Leveraging Travel Abroad to Collect Teaching Resources

Facilitator: Vivian Finch & Stacey Johnson, Asst Directors, Vanderbilt Center for Teaching
Date & Time: Tuesday, April 19th,
12:00-3:00pm (lunch included)
CFT Classroom, 1114 19th Ave South, 3rd floor

Your travel abroad makes you a better teacher and researcher.  If students in your Nashville classroom were able to have those same travel experiences, their education would be enriched and their understanding refined.  Unfortunately, many of your students may not have the opportunity to study abroad.  How, then, can you bridge the gap?   Authentic teaching resources collected abroad are one answer to that question.  Our workshop will provide an in-depth exploration of:

  • How to collect authentic resources while abroad
  • How to use authentic resources in the classroom
  • How to share authentic resources with colleagues and why that’s important
Participants will share their own experiences and expertise and leave the workshop with a personalized plan for 
collecting and implementing authentic resources.
