Talking About Teaching - Beyond the Essay

Beyond the essay: the pedagogical value of non-traditional assignments and alternate forms of argumentation


  • Location: Dumke Commons
  • Time: 11:45 AM - 1:15 PM
  • Sponsor: Faculty

At this Talking about Teaching lunch, a panel of Oxy faculty will talk about the non-traditional assignments and forms of argumentation they use in their courses: including conducting field interviews/oral histories, translations for community organizations, photography in the city, blogging, and constructing arguments using sound recordings, maps, or images.  They will comment on the impetus behind the assignment, the shape of the assignment, the intended learning objectives, and, finally, the value of the assignment.

Lunch Included.
