TALKING ABOUT TEACHING is a University-wide seminar that explores pedagogical connections across disciplines and Schools. Designed by faculty for faculty, this seminar series showcases the work of Harvard master teachers through demonstrations of their pedagogy and discussions of its broader applications.
In four two-hour sessions, participants from across the University experience the pedagogy of one teacher, followed by a discussion – led by a faculty member from a different School – in which the seminar’s participants explore uses of the demonstrated method in their own classrooms.
