Convener: Sarah Nicolazzo, CTL Graduate Fellow, Comparative Literature
Location: English Department Grad Lounge (330 Fisher-Bennett)
Summary: What are the pedagogical challenges and rewards of teaching across languages, fields, media, or time periods? What specific pedagogical skills help us teach radically different objects or methods of analysis in the same course? How do we balance our interdisciplinary interests with the curricular demands that a course train students in a particular field, time period, or national tradition? What specific skills do students learn when we ask them to think across disciplines? Join us for a conversation with Tsitsi Jaji as we address these questions and generate ideas for bridging disciplines in our own classrooms.
All graduate students are welcome. This event grows out of concerns in the Comparative Literature department and so may be most useful to students in related fields.
Counts toward the CTL Teaching Certificate.
