Teaching and Learning Week at HGSE


Thursday, October 18, 2018 (All day)

Dear Friends,

I am delighted to announce that the sixth annual Teaching and Learning Week at HGSE will be held from Monday, October 15 to Friday, October 19.  A website containing comprehensive information about all Teaching and Learning Week activities will be shared in the coming week.

Teaching and Learning Week offers a variety of engaging opportunities for faculty, students, and staff to share and explore effective teaching and learning practices taking place at HGSE.  Whether it is early childhood, K12, higher education,informal settings, or workplace learning, teaching and learning are at the core of what we do as educators.  Teaching and Learning Week is a chance for our community to consider and reflect on our own experiences as learners and facilitators of others’ learning.  Activities include:  

  • a session exploring the capacities needed to make rapid, flexible instructional decisions (work that is funded by the Harvard Initiative for Learning and Teaching)

In addition, continuing a popular tradition, each morning of Teaching and Learning Week will begin with the release of an essay from an HGSE faculty member reflecting on their practice as a teacher.  Also, be on the lookout for tent cards around campus that show selected “big ideas about learning” and when we see them in action.  

More information will be shared in the coming week, so please stay tuned.  Please also note that because space may be limited, many events will require an RSVP. You may email learning@gse.harvard.edu with any questions.

I look forward to this exciting week and celebrating our community’s commitment to teaching and learning.
