Faculty-Graduate Teaching Seminar
Scholarly Approaches to Teaching
The McGraw Teaching Seminar is a year-long opportunity for faculty and graduate student participants to engage collaboratively with current research on a range of issues in teaching and learning in higher education. Based on the current scholarship on teaching, the seminar provides a unique context for participants to have sustained conversations in which they can inquire and reflect on the goals and practices of their teaching. Drawing on these discussions, participants design or redesign courses, create new teaching strategies, and reflect on their students' learning.
