Social science teachers: partially funded three-day seminar at Harvard announced
August 13 through 15, 2008
With David Laibson, professor of economics at Harvard University; and Robert Neugeboren, lecturer on social studies at Harvard University.
The Harvard Summer School is pleased to announce the addition of a three-day special seminar for teachers in the social sciences. Based on the well-known "Chautauqua Seminars" model, there is no cost to participants other than a $50 registration fee. The course is taught by distinguished Harvard faculty and provides an opportunity for invited scholars to share new knowledge, concepts, and techniques directly with teachers in ways which are immediately beneficial to their teaching. The primary aim of this rejuvenating session is to enable teachers to keep their teaching current with respect to both content and pedagogy.
This course will be of interest to undergraduate teachers in a wide range of social science disciplines.
Application should be made as early as possible and will be considered on a space-available basis until the start of each course.
