We are pleased to have Paul Diehl return to our campus for this thoughtful talk. Before going to University of Texas-Dallas to be the Associate Provost and Director of the Center for Teaching and Learning, Professor Diehl was the Founding Director Emeritus of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Teaching Academy and Founding Director Emeritus of the Office of Undergraduate Research.  

Abstract of his presentation: There are some traditional ways and indicators of what we think of as award winning teaching.  Is there anything to be learned by taking the opposite of those?  The talk focuses on two examples and argues that there can be some important lessons about what is good instruction and how we might reevaluate, at least in part, how and to whom we teach.

We invite all across campus to attend this special presentation.
