Teaching: Advice for Faculty

uniinnsbruckWe have teaching advice for faculty including teaching techniques, classroom policies, and how to incorporate classical liberal ideas into a variety of disciplines.  We also have a series on the future of education and the rise of online higher ed and MOOCs, and advice on dealing with traditional and social media as an academic.  Remember that IHS Program Officers are here to help, and be sure to check out our Liberty and the Art of Teaching Workshop for graduate students and new faculty.
