April 5th, 2013
CELT-CE presents Dr. Steven Volk, Department of History and Director of the Center for Teaching Innovation and Excellence, Oberlin College, who will lead a Special Workshop: Teaching as Architecture.
Lunch will be served. RSVP required by 3/22/13; send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In all the discussions of on-line learning, MOOCs, and the crisis of higher education finances, one tends to lose sight of what it is that we want an education to do and how, as teachers, we can best provide it. Using architecture and construction as an extended metaphor for teaching, I probe the challenges of teaching as a creative and imaginative act rooted in the present but directed to the future. The talk explores both the transformative potential of teaching and suggests a number of concrete ways to create a learner-centered educational environment.
Steven Volk is Professor of History and Director of the Center for Teaching Innovation and Excellence (CTIE) at Oberlin College. Professor Volk has had a long career in education and research. Prior to joining the faculty at Oberlin, he served as Editor of NACLA Report on the Americas, where he remains on the Board of Directors. While continuing to teach in History, Professor Volk has also served as Director of CTIE since 2008. His extraordinary record of teaching and mentorship has been nationally recognized. In 2003 he received both Oberlin College’s Distinguished Teaching Award and the American Historical Association’s Nancy Lyman Roelker Mentorship Award. Most recently, in 2011, he was named the U.S. Baccalaureate Colleges Professor of the Year by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and Council for the Support and Advancement of Education.
