The Liberty and the Art of Teaching Workshop advances exceptional teaching by classical liberal scholars. The workshop brings advanced graduate students and young faculty members together with expert teachers to discuss best practices for the university classroom. Topics include classroom tactics, course design principles, the use of technology, online techniques, and methods for weaving classical liberal insights into teaching while preserving balance and encouraging students to think critically.
The seminar format will foster vigorous discussion and offer informal opportunities to share ideas and network with more than 50 participants and lecturers who are passionate about liberty and excellent teaching. Conversation will continue through group meals and a Saturday evening reception.
IHS provides full funding for all participants, including meals, accommodations, and program costs. Participants are responsible for travel (limited scholarships are available to cover travel expenses).
Graduate students and college or university faculty are eligible to apply. Preference will be given to advanced PhD students and early-career faculty. A serious interest in classical liberal thought and in teaching at the college/university level is essential. Scholars in the humanities and social sciences will benefit most directly from the workshop, but students and professors from all disciplines are eligible.
