Bok Seminars 

Each Bok Seminar offers graduate students and scholars the opportunity to explore an area of interest in teaching and learning over multiple sessions. Seminars vary in length and intensity based on their focus areas and goals. They range from 6 sessions to full semester offerings. Seminars are offered in the focus areas represented in the Bok Center Teaching Certificate. The seminar schedule for Spring 2016 is now available.
