Herron Faculty Teaching Residency at the Faculty Crossing

Herron faculty and teaching staff of all rank and appointment are invited to share their work and teaching practices and philosophy at the Crossing during a semester-long residency. The resident’s work, or their students’ work, is displayed in the Crossing. In addition, the resident hosts two Teach Talks which describe their high impact teaching practices and philosophies. The Teach Talks are open to the entire campus. The resident is chosen by the Dean of Herron and supported by the Forum Fellows. 

Current Resident:

Description: As an illustration instructor who relies on one-on-one interaction with students and improvisational teaching methods, the virtual classroom posed many challenges-- as I'm sure it has for most educators. I chose to see this situation as an opportunity to seek out new teaching  strategies, uniquely suited to this environment. I've discovered a few pedagogical techniques that are so useful, I plan to employ them even after long-distance learning is no longer required. I will be sharing these discoveries, in the hopes that instructors in other fields may find them useful.
