Talking About Teaching

12:00 PM  - 1:00 PM
Friday Sep 14, 2018
Suite 309, DeWitt Wallace Library

Olga Gonzalez, Anthropology, will present “Teaching and Advising: A Fruitful Partnership."  Advising has gained explicit recognition in recent years in Liberal Arts Colleges nationwide. At Macalester College faculty development activities were offered in support of the Year of Advising (2016-2017). Does the emphasis on advising suggest this critical component at the intersection of teaching and learning had been neglected and/or had gone unappreciated or taken for granted in academic institutions until fairly recently? In this talk, Professor Gonzalez, last year's winner of the Rossmann Excellence in Teaching Award, reflects on how advising in and outside the classroom benefits the teaching and learning process of students. She will share advising experiences to show the importance of teaching in our role as advisors and the importance of advising in the classroom as teachers. She will also discuss the value of adjusting advising styles according to the situation and the needs of each student.  All faculty welcome.  Lunch will be provided.
