Teachers Talking Intellectual Engagement: Alumni Panel
The Faculty Center for Teaching and the Office of Alumni Affairs invites all interested faculty and staff to the session Teachers Talking Intellectual Engagement: Alumni Panel. This event will take place on Friday, April 27th from 3:00 PM – 4:30 PM in the Hoffman House. Refreshments will be available including wine, beer, other beverages, and assorted appetizers.
At this final event of the year-long Teachers Talking Intellectual Engagement series, we have invited a small number of Muhlenberg alumni to share their thoughts and reflections on their intellectual experiences and development both during and after their time at the College. They will comment on questions such as: What Muhlenberg learning opportunities most helped you develop your intellectual life? Are there moments of intellectual engagement experienced at the college that you appreciate in hindsight? Can you give examples of when you were especially challenged in your academic work at Muhlenberg? Did grades matter to you then and what, if any, role did they play in your post-Muhlenberg lives? What teaching techniques and pedagogical practices did you find to be especially effective with regard to your developing an intellectual life?
The discussants will be Melissa Bodnar (2013), Steven Feldman (2016), Jen Freed (2015), Mitch Hanna (2014), Eric Thompson (2010), and Christopher Zumberge (2014).
We are planning so that there is ample time for Q&A and post-panel mingling.
