CATL presents dynamic Darby Lewes this Friday

Ever find yourself sitting in a workshop that you did not really want to attend? Thinking you would not gain anything from the topic? Sitting strategically by the door so you could slip out as soon as the session failed to meet your expectations? Well, that was a UW-Green Bay faculty member when she first attended Darby Lewes’ presentation. As it turned out, once the session got going, she simply couldn’t leave! The session was amazing — one of the best she has ever attended. It was fun, it was useful, and it made her think. And so, with support from Student Services and both academic deans, CATL is bringing Lycoming College faculty member Darby Lewes to campus this Friday (Sept. 25) for two different presentations, one at 10 a.m. and another at 2 p.m., both in Phoenix C on the second level of the University Union. In general, Lewes focuses on the idea that, whether we admit it or not, we condition our students, reinforcing some behaviors and discouraging others. It is likely not everyone will agree with her analysis or her ideas, which is ultimately why CATL (the Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning) decided she would be a great speaker for this fall semester. What better way to think about teaching than to have a dynamic speaker and opinions about what she has to say!
