Teaching as Architecture

featuring Dr. Steven Volk; Professor of History and the Director of the Center for Teaching Innovation and Excellence, Oberlin College

Date: Friday, April 5, 2013
Time: 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM
Building: Lavin-Bernick Center (LBC) in Room 203
Location: uptown campus
Other Information: Stibbs

In all the discussions of on-line learning, MOOCs, and the crisis of higher education finances, one tends to lose sight of what it is that we want an education to do and how, as teachers, we can best provide it. Using architecture and construction as an extended metaphor for teaching, I probe the challenges of teaching as a creative and imaginative act rooted in the present but directed to the future. The talk explores both the transformative potential of teaching and suggests a number of concrete ways to create a learner-centered educational environment.
