A panel discussion with Tim Beatley, Teresa Heinz Professor of Sustainable
Communities, Urban Planning; Debbie Roach, Cavalier’s Distinguished
Professor of Biology; Tim Wilson, Sherrell J. Aston Professor Of Psychology
Participants will have an opportunity to share their own ideas and questions about ways to make teaching and research activities productively synergistic after hearing from this panel of three colleagues whose research and teaching interact in a variety of ways, including these:
- finding that students’ questions or ideas point to future research directions
- bringing one’s research skills into the classroom in order to teach better
- teaching one’s current research to undergraduates effectively
- developing a symbiotic professional life in which one’s teaching and research enhance each other
Although the focus will be on undergraduate teaching, we will also share ideas about teaching graduate courses.
