Dennis Proffitt, Commonwealth Professor of Psychology
In Spring 2004, I taught the most successful advanced undergraduate seminar of my career. In this teaching workshop, I will talk about what worked and why, including the following topics:
- Selecting the topics to be covered, books, and readings
- Structuring student assignments and class presentations
- Nurturing conversation and debate during class
- Writing exams
- Giving students the opportunity to teach me something
The seminar was titled, “Light, Life, and Vision.” It was also frequently called, “The Joy of Finding Stuff Out.”
