About the Symposium

The Office of the Provost welcomes the Columbia community to Low Library for the Celebration of Teaching and Learning Symposium to celebrate the ways that faculty and graduate students are transforming their courses and pedagogies.

This year’s keynote speaker is Carl Wieman (bio), Nobel Laureate and Professor of Physics and Education at Stanford University. Wieman’s keynote presentation will focus on taking a scientific approach to teaching. The keynote will be followed by an interactive showcase in the Rotunda featuring presentations by faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students. After an announcement of the inaugural cohort of the Provost’s Senior Faculty Teaching Scholars, participants will be invited to join a reception in the Faculty Room.
