    Fall Teaching Conference Workshop: Teaching Across Disciplines

    12:30pm to 1:30pm

    Location: 

    Online

    Eleanor Finnegan, Assistant Director, Faculty Programming, Derek Bok Center for Teaching and Learning

    As a graduate student, you may be asked to teach a course outside of your primary area of expertise—whether in a department or program different from your own, or in the Program in General Education. This can be a daunting prospect, but effective teaching ultimately is not just (or even primarily) about mastering or communicating a specific body of content.

    Erika Bailey, Head of Voice and Speech, American Repertory Theater; Lecturer on Theater, Dance & Media

    We spend most of our time preparing for class by focusing on what we need to cover— what we need to SAY. But are we actually reaching our students? Our physical as well as our vocal presence play an integral role in our ability to communicate our ideas and engage students. This year, after more than a year of being physically distant from each other and teaching within the confines of a Zoom square, we will also be re-introduced to the possibilities of sharing...
