The Graduate School of Education (GSE) is cosponsoring the first George Mason University Great Teaching Seminar on Tuesday, Jan. 18, to create excitement among faculty members about improving instruction. The seminar, held from noon to 4 p.m. in Mason Hall, Room D3, is an interactive, small-group experience in which each professor highlights one great teaching idea and receives help in solving instructional dilemmas.

“The Great Teaching Seminar encourages faculty members from different disciplines to talk to each other about instruction,” says Mark Goor, GSE. “We have so much to learn from the modes and thinking that other disciplines use to prepare students. The seminar elevates the discussion about good teaching to a new level of importance.”

The seminar is open to all faculty members. Those participating should bring a brief description of a successful teaching idea and a statement of an instructional challenge. Refreshments will be provided.
