The Center for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching (CELT) is delighted to present Dr. Michael Wesch, a cultural anthropologist and media ecologist at Kansas State University. Wesch regularly teaches large classes and was the 2008 U.S. Professor of the Year for Doctoral and Research Universities selected by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. He will be talking about creating a sense of “wonder” in the classroom by giving students the gift of “big questions.” We are very excited about Professor Wesch’s visit and believe his instructional methods and experiences will be inspirational for the faculty in your department. We are hopeful that his talk will begin an important dialogue on our campus around educational topics such as the use of technology in the classroom and innovative teaching methods for larger courses.
