Joe Hoyle, David Meade White Distinguished Teaching Fellow, Robins School of Business, University of Richmond
“Teaching,” writes Joe Hoyle, “is serious business.” In this interactive session, Joe shares some of his practical tips for introducing students to the excitement and wonder we, as scholars, have discovered. His tips spring from thirty-six years of experience maintaining high expectations and engaging students in financial accounting, a subject that Joe says, “Many students initially find as boring as watching mushrooms grow.” Of interest to individuals teaching in a variety of disciplines, this discussion will focus on shared concerns in our serious business, namely how to challenge and encourage students to think, understand and learn.
This workshop is open to the entire University community, both faculty and graduate students. Sponsored by the TRC University Teaching Fellows Program.
