CTL Faculty Series: Tiffany Washington

Classes and Workshops, Lectures, Readings and Discussions

The focus of Tiffany Washington's Award Winning Faculty Series talk will be the ways in which faculty can connect their in-class teaching to their larger research agenda. Focusing on her own pedagogical practice, Washington, assistant professor in the University of Georgia School of Social Work, will highlight experiential learning techniques and share from her own pedagogical practice, including students’ feedback. Launched in Fall 2013, CTL’s Award Winning Faculty Series has hosted several of UGA’s award-winning faculty representing numerous academic disciplines and specialties. This interactive series highlights UGA’s best and brightest in instruction as several recent Meigs and Russell award winners have presented in the series. Each faculty member is asked to model her or his pedagogy in practice as well as discuss what research or experiences inspired the showcased pedagogical techniques. Like the CTL’s National Speaker Series, the Award Winning Faculty Series is designed to foster deeper and more reflective conversations about teaching and learning at the University of Georgia.
