The Center for Teaching and Learning’s “Reflections on Teaching” invites senior members of the faculty to reflect on their practice—to show us not only what they do, but also to take us behind the scenes and explain why they made the choices that they did over the years that they have been teaching.

These have been insightful and joyful events in past years. We hope you will join us this year to learn from and with our colleagues and celebrate their teaching careers.
