Centre for Teaching and Learning - Brown Bag Conversation with Principal Daniel Woolf

 
2009-11-09

Principal Woolf is continuing the tradition of leading a Brown Bag Conversation at Queen’s. Faculty and students are welcome to have lunch with the Principal while discussing teaching issues, and to hear his perspectives on ways of enhancing the quality of teaching and learning at Queen’s.

The session is held by the Centre for Teaching and Learning. The topic is “Recalibrating the Balance between Teaching and Research: Some Reflections” and takes place Thursday, Nov. 12, at noon in Richardson Hall, Board Room, 3rd floor.

“Teaching and Research are sometimes cast as complementary elements in a zero-sum game: the more one teaches, the less time one has for research, and vice-versa,” says Principal Woolf. “I will argue that teaching and research can and often do enhance each other. Students appreciate hearing from the mouth of a researcher what he or she is doing and sensing the excitement that we all feel in research. Similarly, some of our best ideas have their germ in teaching.”
