What the Best College Teachers Do

What the Best College Teachers Do"You don't teach a class. You teach a student."
—Ken Bain

Bring your successes, bring your challenges, and brainstorm with your colleagues using the collective wisdom of hundreds of the top faculty in the nation. Inspired by Ken Bain’s book, What the Best College Teachers Do (Harvard, 2004), this workshop explores what works and what doesn’t in promoting authentic learning for students.

The Center for Innovation and Teaching Excellence presents this new hybrid workshop of four face-to-face meetings, one week in which workshop participants are engaged in online discourse, and an ongoing discussion concerning best teaching practices both in-class and online. This provocative dialogue—intended for both veteran Columbia faculty and those brand new to our community—will examine what we really do when we teach, and how we know if we’re actually helping our students learn.
