Featured Session

The Teacher in the Movies

We are pleased to offer The Teacher in the Movies, a session by special guest, James Rhem, founder and executive editor of The National Teaching & Learning Forum. In addition to his extensive work with The Forum, Dr. Rhem also created "The Teaching Professor" and served as faculty for the "Bootcamp for Profs" program. In this session, Dr. Rhem traces the archetype of the teacher as reflected in and portrayed by movies, exploring the public idea of "the teacher" and its private reality as each faculty member carries part of it into practice. Register for The Teacher in the Movies today!

Location and Parking

Sessions meet on Belknap Campus in the Delphi Center, Ekstrom Library, Room 244. We can provide a parking pass if you park at the Speed Museum garage, located next to Ekstrom library.
