Alumni College - Colleagues, Conversations, and Connections: Teaching

Supporting excellent teaching at Carleton, presented by Melissa Eblen-Zayas.

Friday, June 21st, 2019
1:15 – 2:15 pm / Olin Hall 141

Alumni College: Colleagues, Conversations, and Connections: Supporting Excellent Teaching at Carleton, presented by Melissa Eblen-Zayas, Director, Perlman Center for Learning and Teaching and the Humphrey Doermann Professor of Liberal Learning and Professor of Physics. 

The Perlman Center for Learning and Teaching (LTC) is designed to foster collegial conversations among faculty and staff about a broad array of topics related to teaching and learning. In addition to working with new faculty and providing avenues for faculty to observe each other's classrooms, the LTC also hosts a weekly lunch series where faculty and staff discuss challenges and share successes. In this session, I will reflect on three themes in recent LTC programming: designing porous classrooms that create stronger connections with the world beyond Carleton; teaching with the mental health and wellness of a diverse student population in mind; and supporting civil discourse, information literacy, and difficult conversations in an era of polarization.
