The Importance of Teaching the Humanities: A Faculty-Led Discussion

Featuring:  Lisa Balabanlilar, Terry Doody, Richard Grandy, Caleb McDaniel, Scott McGill, and Kirsten Ostherr

The Center for Teaching Excellence is excited to announce an event designed for and facilitated by faculty in the School of Humanities!

Modeled on one of the sessions at last year's De Lange conference, all attendees will have the opportunity to take part in small-group conversations exploring the importance of teaching the Humanities.  Each group will be led by a faculty colleague who will facilitate the discussion.   It is, of course, a broad topic, but we are hoping that each group will steer the conversation in any direction they'd like.  After 20 minutes of these small-group discussions, we will then ask the leaders to share the results of the conversations with the larger group.  Following this, we'll open the floor for commentary and questions.

Tenured, tenure-track, and NTT faculty are all welcome.  Please RSVP here:  http://cte.rice.edu/humanitiesrsvp.

Please direct any questions or comments to Josh Eyler at jeyler@rice.edu or x2732.
