Fall Quarter "Meet, Greet, Teach" Workshop:

Event Topic: "Teaching in a Porous College - Is the Sum more than the Holes?"

From the early planning days, some have described the College of the Environment as an un-College with innovative cross-connections between units and faculty, drawing on the real-world experience of practitioners outside of the University blended with the academic experience of star teaching faculty. Can all of that coolness really be packaged into undergrad and grad courses? Join us for the first MGT of the 2009-2010 season where we'll hear from voices inside and outside of the new College on their thoughts on how to create porosity instead of just Swiss cheese.


  • Jon Bakker, Assistant Professor, Forest Resources
  • Peter Kahn, Associate Professor, Psychology
  • David Montgomery, Professor, Earth & Space Sciences
  • Linda Nash, Associate Professor, History

  • Wanting more follow-up? We'll wrap up the session with time for more interaction over a glass of wine and light appetizers.

    So bring your ideas, and join us for MGT -- an opportunity to explore teaching ideas, make a contact, find a shared direction, and learn something new.
