Art of Teaching

AoT guidebook image

Teaching is no easy task. It is an art form that requires craft, sensitivity, and intelligence. Whether your classroom consists of three students or 300, it is important to be as effective and successful a teacher as possible, both for the education of your students and for your own professional and personal growth. The Art of Teaching workshop series consists of viewing video sessions followed by group discussion, and then application to your own teaching. Workshops are interdisciplinary, so you can learn from your colleagues across the campus.

The videos are from the Great Courses series and are taught by Dr. Patrick Allitt from Emory University. All instructors are welcome, including graduate students.

The series starts over with session one in the fall 2021 semester. You can register in Talent Management or by contacting All sessions will be held in the PACE conference room (CHSS building, bottom floor, room C002) on specified Mondays from 3-4 pm. For Fall 21, the dates include 20 Sep; 18 Oct; and 15 Nov.
