The Art of Teaching-Learning Lecture Series

The Art of Teaching-Learning Lecture Series is motivated by Lloyd International Honors College’s desire to build and strengthen a community of intellectual engagement. Focused both on the content of instructors’ expertise and their means of creatively engaging students, this lecture series also explores how the classroom enhances the instructor’s knowledge of the subject matter. Open to the campus, the Art of Teaching-Learning Lecture Series will shine a light onto courses and subjects that have taught for decades or that are newly under consideration.
