Who: For anyone teaching in the Humanities and Social Sciences Core, including faculty, Harper-Schmidt Fellows, lecturers, and graduate student instructors. 

Fulton Recital Hall (Goodspeed Hall, 4th Floor)

The Core is a defining feature of undergraduate education in the College, and can be one of the more rewarding teaching experiences at UChicago. Join the Masters of the Humanities and Social Sciences Collegiate Divisions, experienced Core teachers, and staff from the Chicago Center for Teaching as we discuss the goals and distinctive pedagogical issues that characterize Humanities, Civilization Studies, and Social Science Core courses. Representatives from College Advising, Student Counseling Services, Academic Technology Solutions, the Writing Program, the Smart Museum, and Chicago Studies will also be on hand to provide information about campus resources to support and supplement teaching and learning in the Core.

This event is open to everyone, and is aimed at those teaching in the Humanities and Social Sciences Cores in 2019-2020 (particularly those who are new to the Core), including faculty and lecturers; Harper-Schmidt Fellows; Teaching Fellows in the Humanities, Social Sciences, and the Divinity School; and graduate student instructors.

The Forum will take place over three days in the Fulton Recital Hall, on the fourth floor of Goodspeed Hall. You are welcome to attend all or portions of the event, which you can indicate when registering here.
