Strengths-Based Pedagogy (or How to Teach from your Strengths)

Printer-friendly versionSend by emailPDF version

This event is open to UTFA members only.

In this workshop, faculty members are prompted to re-frame the ways in which they choose the pedagogical tools employed in their course/s. Instead of trying to realize a false conception of teaching excellence, or being mired in the "traditional mode of the discipline," faculty members are taken through a process of identifying their own natural strengths as a teacher (secret: everyone has them), and given a rationale on how to infuse them into their specific course/s. In this way, teaching becomes more engaging for the faculty member and learning more engaging for students.

Richard Freishtat is Director of the Center for Teaching and Learning at the University of California, Berkeley. 

This event venue is wheelchair accessible.
