Forum on Teaching in the Core

September 16, 2020, 9:45 AM - 2:30 PM, Online

The Core is a defining feature of undergraduate education in the College and can be one of the more rewarding teaching experiences at UChicago.  This sixth annual Forum on Teaching in the Core comes at a time when reflection on the aims and methods of teaching in the Core takes on a renewed urgency as we think through how to engage students with the ideas and the intellectual community of the Core in the context of the pandemic. 

Reflecting these circumstances, the 2020 Core Forum, presented in partnership with the College aims to provide a venue for discussing Core pedagogy, guidance on workshops and trainings on remote and hybrid teaching, and information on relevant campus resources.

This event is open to everyone and is aimed at those teaching in the Humanities and Social Sciences Collegiate Divisions in 2020-2021 (particularly those who are new to the Core), including faculty, instructional professors, lecturers, Harper-Schmidt Fellows, Teaching Fellows, and graduate student instructors.  Link to the Core Forum site for detailed information and to register for specifc sections.  

The CCT is committed to making our programs and events inclusive and accessible.  Please contact for accomodation requests.
