In her Office of Career Planning workshop “Collaborative Pedagogies,” Cathy N. Davidson will address the ways that traditional forms of learning, teaching, and research are increasingly being revised and re-envisioned. This workshop will include some brief remarks, followed by exercises in peer, collaborative pedagogies, and then an extensive discussion of how and why graduate students should be experimenting with collaborative pedagogies. If you have a laptop or another portable device, please bring it to use and share for some real-time collaborative pedagogical experiments.
