Team Teaching from Classroom to Gallery

Presenters: Marsha Bryant (Professor & Distinguished Teaching Scholar, English), Mary Ann Eaverly (Professor & Chair, Classics), Nina Stoyan-Rosenzweig (Senior Associate in Libraries, Health Science Center Libraries), Carol McCusker (Curator of Photography, Harn), Eric Segal (Director of Education and Curator of Academic Programs, Harn) 

 

Have you ever thought about team-teaching a course at UF? Collaboration can energize our teaching just as it does our research. Through team-teaching, faculty are creating innovative undergraduate courses that would be impossible for a single faculty member to teach independently. Some of these courses collaborate across academic disciplines, while others collaborate with UF Libraries or the Harn Museum of Art. Some do both. 

 

This workshop features two team-taught courses that collaborated with the Harn: Women Writers & Classical Myths, and What Makes a Monster. Learn more about team teaching in collaborative spaces and start planning your adventure.
