Note from the Executive Director
Greetings as we spring into a new semester and a new year!
I am excited to welcome you all to Low Library for our annual Celebration of Teaching and Learning Symposium on Tuesday, March 12, to celebrate the ways that faculty and graduate students are transforming their courses and pedagogies. This year’s event, co-sponsored by the Office of the Provost, will feature keynote speaker Carl Wieman, Nobel Laureate and Professor of Physics and Education at Stanford University. Wieman’s keynote presentation will focus on taking a scientific approach to teaching. The keynote will be followed by an interactive showcase in the Rotunda featuring presentations by faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students. At the end of the day, participants are welcome to a reception in Faculty Room.
Be sure to check out the Spring 2019 workshops, institutes, and intensives for Faculty and Graduate Students. And if you have any new colleagues, please share with them our new, self-paced online orientation to teaching at Columbia. We hope you all will visit us soon.
Happy New Year and enjoy your semester!
