Senior Ben Sweeton and Politics Professor Amy Patterson reflect on their time in the classroom and the value of questions without answers.
Welcome to the Sewanee's Celebration of Teaching for the 2020-2021 academic year!
Each spring semester the University's Center for Teaching takes one week to celebrate the process and outcomes of education in the classroom. This annual Celebration of Teaching is a tradition intended to spotlight both the innovative and impactful teaching work of the faculty and the dedicated work of their students.
While regularly this is an opportunity for all in the University community to experience and share the magic of education in the physical classroom, this year, because of the unique circumstances of remote teaching, our Center has invited current students and faculty to sit down with one another virtually to take time and reflect on the nature and outcomes of their four years of hard work teaching and learning.
We invite the community to enjoy some brief glimpses below from our dedicated faculty and students. We are especially delighted to share with you their joys, frustrations, and meaningful reflections on how and why they've pursued and nurtured the education that happens on this campus.
