Lunchtime Teaching Workshops for Teaching Fellows
The Bok Center invites you to join us for a series of lunchtime teaching workshops geared toward answering questions and tackling challenges you might encounter as a TF at Harvard.  Each meeting will be a combination of interactive instruction and group discussion, allowing TFs to nuance their thinking about teaching while also troubleshooting particular issues they've encountered in the classroom.  The sessions are designed to be interdisciplinary and reach out to TFs across departments.  Lunch will be provided. Learn more and RSVP here.

Transgressing the Limits of Knowledge

Transgressing the Limits of Knowledge brings together Harvard faculty including Catherine Elgin (Epistemology), Jill Johnson (Dance), Vijay Iyer (Music), Martin Nowak (Evolutionary Dynamics) to discuss the interplay of theory and practice within embodied understanding. 

Sponsored also by the Harvard Initiative for Learning and Teaching (HILT), the multidisciplinary panel discussion will be moderated to explore the ways in which the four professors overlap in having embodied research practices that emerge out of, and often challenge, traditional views of how to derive understanding (within music, dance, and mathematics as well as more broadly in philosophy). Visit for more info. 

Transgressing the Limits of Knowledge will take place at 7pm on December 1st, at Tsai Auditorium, CGIS South, 1730 Cambridge St.
