The Last Lecture: College Teaching as Professional Practice, Scholarly Activity, and Transformational Leadership

Dr. Loui will describe three ways of thinking about teaching in colleges and universities. "We can think of our teaching as a professional practice: we take professional responsibility for organizing learning activities, and we exercise professional judgment in evaluating students' work. We can think of our teaching as a scholarly activity: our methods can be grounded in the research on pedagogy, our decisions can be based on evidence of student learning, and our teaching quality can be evaluated through peer review. Finally, we can think of our teaching as a kind of transformational leadership: we can inspire our students and encourage them to pursue their dreams." He will illustrate some of these ideas with examples from his teaching experiences.
