Prof. Lee Shulman of Stanford will speak that morning about "Teaching Excellence in Research Universities," drawing on research commissioned while he was head of the Carnegie Foundation and also from his practical experience as a professor at Stanford and Michigan State.
The interactive afternoon workshop for faculty will focus on the "how" of better teaching. It will be led Ken Bain, well-known author of a widely-read, research-based book entitled "What the Best College Teachers Do." (I recommend it.) That same afternoon we are also planning a special event for department chairs.
