Event Description

Inspired teaching is a complex interplay of both art and science. Fortunately, Bethel has a number of educators distinguished in these critical attributes of teaching. This session, featuring four Faculty Excellence Award for Teaching recipients, explores "Habits of Mind" that are critical to both artists and teachers. Jay Rasmussen (Education) will draw a parallel between the artistry involved in photography and teaching, Joey Horstman (English) will share his experiences noticing in the classroom, Chris Gehrz (History) will discuss how wondering has led to successful classroom practices, and Sara Shady (Philosophy) will share examples of persistence that have translated into powerful student learning experiences. Please join this session to consider how noticing, wondering, and persisting can help educators develop and sustain their vibrancy as artists in the classroom.
