Colloquium - Main, Barnes and Hertzberg

Teaching Excellence in a Lab Setting
Department of Computer Science

11/12/1998
3:45pm-4:45pm

In keeping with the Computer Science Department's commitment to teaching excellence on the part of both graduate instructors and faculty, this week's colloquium will be a panel discussion by outstanding engineering faculty. This presentation, which targets TAs, graduate students, and faculty of the College of Engineering and Applied Science, is a part of the College's Excellence in Teaching Series.

The specific topic of this panel is lab courses. Although a great instructor will do well in almost any teaching environment, the lab setting provides its own unique teaching challenges. For example, the instruction is mostly hands-on, the working environment is close, there are safety considerations, and there are challenges to interpersonal communication skills, grading, and time management. The panel will address these issues, defining what makes a great teacher in the lab environment and suggesting some tools and techniques for achieving excellence in laboratory teaching.

Refreshments will be served immediately before the talk at 3:30pm.
