Bryn Mawr as a Learning/Teaching Environment:
A Conversation
Spring, 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, Anne Dalke, Cheryl Selah, Corey Shdaimah.
