The University Lecture

With William Kuskin, Professor, English; Faculty Director for Online Innovation the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences

Our moment requires a flexible approach. Kuskin will discuss the university lecture as a mode of content delivery in live and remote settings. Drawing on his experience in the lecture hall and in teaching Massive Open Online Courses, he will propose a fundamental rule—”Learning Belongs to the Learner”—and pursue its implications for the lecture hall and the Zoom room. The class will feature examples from comics and medieval literature. 

This workshop will take place remotely, via Zoom. You will need to be logged in to Zoom with your CU credentials to access this session. 

Slides will be shared with participants. Live captioning and ASL interpretation are available upon request. Email to request accommodations. We will attempt to fulfill all requests, but cannot guarantee requests made within 7 days of the event.

This session is part of the CTL’s Fall Intensive, an annual event supporting the development of graduate students as teaching scholars. The workshops are designed to help you teach at CU Boulder, begin your professional development in postsecondary education, and explore nonacademic job opportunities. While sessions are designed for graduate students, many are applicable to any educator new to CU Boulder and anyone is welcome at any event.
