Any Present, Past or Future TAs . . .

   Posted by: Jill White    in Campus Events, Presentations

might be interested in coming this Friday to a workshop I’m leading on course design. Past and present TAs know how obsessed I am about backward design, and those who will work with me in the future might as well learn now!

“Throw Out the Bathwater but Save the Baby: How good course design leads to better understanding of fewer topics”  is the title, and we will meet in the 1965 Room of the University Union from 2:15-3:45 pm.  That’s Dec. 2.

My Anthro 320 students will be excited to see that we have a speaker coming to campus with amazing timing (again!).

Professor Matthew J. Liebmann, will speak broadly about anthropological views of religion, and specifically about the role of charismatic leadership in the history of Native American religion, with a case study drawing on his archaeological research on Pueblo Indian cultural revitalization in 17th Century New Mexico. You can view Matt’s bio by clicking here: http://www.fas.harvard.edu/~liebarch/

You can hear Dr. Liebman at the  Mauthe Center on Tuesday, December 6 at 7 p.m.
