This session's focus: Round table discussion with Experienced Graduate Instructors
The primary goal of this series of pedagogy seminars is to prepare students to teach elementary and secondary languages, both at Stanford and at other institutions. Much of the pedagogical material discussed will be applicable to other kinds of Classics teaching, but language instruction will be the focus. Secondary goals are to prepare students for pedagogy-related questions as they enter the job market, and to introduce pedagogy-facing career options. Discussions will range broadly from ethical and philosophical questions about pedagogy to practical and logistical issues specific to graduate teaching. Readings, class visits, and in-class demonstrations will inform meeting discussions.
This seminar is designed only for Classics PhD students and other instructors in the Department of Classics.
Lunch will be provided.
