Academic Roundtable — The Future of the Lecture

Please join us on Tuesday, September 30, 2014 in the Davis Family Library, Harman Reading Area at 12:15 PM for the first Academic Roundtable of the fall semester.

The lecture has a long history in the academy.  In recent years, there has been increasing criticism of the lecture as a mode of instruction.  This Academic Roundtable will explore the virtues and limitations of the lecture.   Jay Parini of English and American Literatures and Barbara Hofer of Psychology will offer opening reflections on the topic, and a discussion will follow.

Lunch will be served in the LIB 145.  Please RSVP to by Friday, Sept. 26, 2014.

The Academic Roundtable is co-sponsored by the Center for Teaching, Learning, & Research and the Library.
