Any Teacher of Business Can be Effective ... If You Teach From Your Strengths

Rather than reacting to mostly summative, traditional feedback about one's teaching practice received through student evaluations and promotion/tenure processes, in this workshop, business faculty are prompted to re-frame the ways in which they choose pedagogical tools and how they are employed in their course/s to promote student learning.

Instead of trying to realize a false conception of business teaching excellence, or being mired in the "traditional mode of the discipline," participants are taken through a process of identifying their own natural strengths as a teacher (secret: everyone has them), and through a formative process of reflection and analysis are given a rationale on how to infuse them into the course/s they teach across accounting, economics, finance and more.

In this way, teaching becomes more engaging for the educator and learning more engaging for students as we surface the many ways business education can be effectively facilitated.

Presenter: Dr Richard Freishtat serves as Director of Berkeley's Center for Teaching and Learning, where he partners with faculty to inspire, enrich, and innovate Berkeley’s collective practice and pursuit of teaching excellence.
