CFDE Newsletter - March 2016Message from the Director
I hope you are all enjoying this very busy Spring semester.
We in the CFDE continue our work in support of your teaching and scholarship. In particular, this semester we have created a series on Innovative Pedagogy co-hosted with the Coalition on the Liberal Arts. Emory offers many broad, interdisciplinary courses that cross traditional pedagogical boundaries, disciplines and schools, and integrate the liberal arts mission across the university. Faculty participating in these courses learn to teach in new and different ways, acquire specific tools and strategies, discover new conceptualizations, and perhaps find new resources that will infuse their future teaching and scholarship. Innovative Pedagogies conversations will highlight and reflect on the challenges and rewards of teaching across the university.
Our first event is a faculty panel discussion on Interdisciplinary Teaching on Thursday, March 3, at 4:15 in the Jones Room. Faculty from the College, School of Medicine, Center for Ethics, and Goizueta will reflect on the delight and challenges of interdisciplinary teaching. Other events through the semester will showcase teaching and technology, the work of art in teaching and learning, and the CoLA courses. Please look out for our flyers that will advertise each event. They are also described in more detail at this link.
