Telling the Stories of Our Teaching

Tuesday, April 30 | 3:00-4:30 in McLaren 251

Telling the Stories of Our Teaching RSVP

Teaching is a complex and personal endeavor that often occurs behind closed doors. We are very public about our research and other academic accomplishments but rarely share our teaching with a wide audience. However, we spend a tremendous amount of time thinking about our teaching, planning our classes, and supporting our students’ learning. We work tirelessly to create engaging, thought-provoking, and rigorous classroom experiences that our students love and learn from but our colleagues often know very little about. Many of us are inspired to teach from our prior professional and life experiences. Regardless of how we came to the classroom and what we are doing in our classrooms, we all have unique stories to tell about our teaching.

We have invited 8 USF faculty to share a unique story about their teaching. We have asked them to choose an object that helps tell the story and symbolizes their ideas about teaching and why they choose to teach.

Please join us on Tuesday, April 30th from 3:00-4:30 in McLaren 251 to hear the amazing teaching stories of Bob Bathrick (Rhetoric & Language), Lara Bazelon (Law), Rachel Brahinsky (Urban & Public Affairs), Patrick Camangian (Teacher Education), Amy Gilgan (Reference & Research Services, Gleeson Library) Richard Greggory Johnson III (Public & Nonprofit Administration), Alark Joshi (Computer Science), and Dhara Meghani (Nursing and Health Professions).
