CAS Professors to Present at 2011 Lilly Conference

Robbie Pinter (English), Pete Giordano (Psychology) and Mike Pinter (Mathematics) had a workshop proposal entitled “Personal Metaphors for Teaching” accepted for The 31st Annual International Lilly Conference on College Teaching to be held at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, Nov. 17-20.  The theme for this year’s conference is “Teaching for Brain-Based Learning.”

The abstract of the workshop proposal: As teachers, we can explore the metaphors we use for teaching and what they may say about our perspectives on teaching.  Using small and large group discussion and a brief guided visualization exercise, our session will offer an invitation to enter a creative space for reflection and conversation on both general and course-specific metaphors.  Participants will generate ideas for considering the language they use in thinking about and describing their courses.
