The Belmont University Teaching Center hosted a keynote address and workshop presented by President of Goucher College in Baltimore Dr. Jose Bowen on July 14. Based on his widely acclaimed book, Teaching Naked: How Moving Technology Out of Your College Classroom Will Improve Student Learning, Dr. Brown’s key note and workshop explored practical applications of the “Teaching Naked” cycle as described in the book.
In addition to more than 70 Belmont faculty members who participated in the event, guests from a variety of other colleges and universities traveled to Belmont for the keynote and workshop. Other institutions represented included Middle Tennessee State University, Austin Peay State University, Tennessee State University, Lipscomb University, Samford University, Western Kentucky University, Cabrini College and Carnegie Mellon University. Two Goucher alumni were also among the attendees.
The Teaching Center will offer several follow up events from Bowen’s presentation. Some additional sessions, led by Belmont faculty and staff, during the August 17 and 18 Teaching Center workshops will incorporate topics addressed by Bowen. Teaching Naked will be among several titles offered during the fall 2015 semester for Teaching Center Applied Teaching/Learning Reading Groups.
