Designing Your Own Class

Professors Elizabeth Camp and Daniel J. Singer, Philosophy

Monday, April 8 | 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Graduate Student Workshops

Convener: Wiebke Deimling, CTL Graduate Fellow, Philosophy

Location: Cohen 493

Summary: This workshop discusses different aspects of designing a philosophy class. Topics discussed will include: picking engaging and rewarding readings (and the right amount of them), gauging and addressing student needs and interests, making and spacing assignments (for fair, useful and efficient evaluation), and incorporating student driven elements (such as discussions, presentations, debates and student chosen assignment topics).
All graduate students are welcome. This event grows out of concerns in the Philosophy department and so may be most useful to students in related fields.
Counts toward the CTL Teaching Certificate.
