Save the date for EGSA’s first speaker event on Friday, Nov. 8, 2pm, McHugh Hall 206.
David Gooblar, PhD, will be discussing his new book, Missing Course: Everything They Never Taught You About College Teaching, published by Harvard University Press (August 2019). David holds a joint appointment in the Department of Rhetoric at the University of Iowa as well as in the Center for the Advancement of Learning at Temple University. He writes the “Pedagogy Unbound” column for the Chronicle of Higher Education’s Vitae site. Every two weeks, the column offers college instructors practical advice, informed by research, on how to create more effective student-centered classrooms. He also edits pedagogyunbound.com, an online space for college teachers to share their most valuable teaching tips. Please feel free to reach out to Leah Begg (email@example.com) if you have any questions.
This event will be co-sponsored by UConn Humanities Institute (UCHI) and the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL). CETL is also offering three “book club” lunch discussions prior to Gooblar’s visit. They will meet Oct. 18 (11:30-1:00), Oct. 25 (11:30-1:00), and Nov. 8 (11:30-1:00) (with Gooblar). We are asking people to commit to all 3 sessions. CETL will provide lunch for all 3 meetings. Participants will receive a copy of the book prior to the first meeting.
Faculty and graduate students alike are encouraged to attend!
