DEADLINE 3/15 Pedagogical Approaches to Medieval and Early Modern Studies w/ Keynote by Robert N. Watson

UCLA Medieval and Early Modern Student Association & UCLA Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies
contact email: 
memsa.ucla@gmail.com

The last two decades have seen radical revisions to curricula at universities and colleges around the world. But have curricular changes been accompanied by pedagogical developments? When it comes to teaching, graduate students often learn by doing. By virtue of their experiments and their proximity to the undergraduate curriculum, they are among the most innovative educators on their campuses. The Medieval and Early Modern Students Association at UCLA and the Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies invite graduate students to share their experience at a conference on June 7 that deals with teaching Medieval and Early Modern material in the undergraduate classroom. We are pleased to announce that our keynote speaker will be distinguished professor and Waldo W. Neikirk Chair for Innovative Undergraduate Education, Robert N. Watson.
