Stories of Teaching and Learning: A Conversation
Fall, 2005

Education aims at bringing about change in those involved in it, and is itself a changing process, one that necessarily adapts to the demands placed on it by broader cultural forces as well as by the needs and inclinations of individuals participating in it.

This series of discussions is intended to encourage and support ongoing thinking about the nature and practice of education using Bryn Mawr itself, and the experiences of learners and teachers here, as a case study. In addition to reflecting on our own experiences, we will read selected articles to help put our local experiences into a broader context as well as to explore ways in which experiences elsewhere are relevant here.

This series is open to all interested students (both undergraduate and graduate), faculty, and staff (see Explorations of Teaching for archives of a prior series involving graduate students and faculty). For additional information, contact Jody Cohen or Anne Dalke.

The Dean's Certificate in Pedagogy is offered by the Deans of the two Graduate Schools of Bryn Mawr College. All graduate and post-doctoral students who would like to develop and improve their teaching abilities and experiences are invited to participate.
