Korean Studies Pedagogy Workshop for Junior Faculty

May 13, 2017 

Henderson Room, Michigan League
University of Michigan, Ann Arbor MI

The University of Michigan Nam Center for Korean Studies seeks to develop a network of faculty in Korean studies by offering the opportunity for junior faculty to participate in a pedagogy workshop. During the workshop, participants will receive constructive feedback on their Korean studies courses and curricular structure to meet the growing demand for Korean studies courses. At the workshop, senior mentors will share their classroom experiences, practices and tips for effective teaching, and pedagogical resources, which will be useful for development of a course or a module. The workshop is open to junior tenure-track faculty from all fields in the social sciences and humanities.
