March 11 “Looking (and Loafing) with Whitman“: Lecture with Elisa New, Powell M. Cabot Professor of American Literature at Harvard University. Selection we discussed starts at 34:28. Instrument: Teaching observation sheets.
This lecture was a part of a series of Teachers’ Lounges organized around examples of strong pedagogy in action. We observed footage of university educators who are noted lecturers and pedagogues, and then reflecting on and critiquing their practices. In our discussions, we will built on Fall 2015 Lounges by considering how aspects of inclusive teaching are (or are not) at play in the footage we watch together.
