English Department Teaching Symposium

English Teaching Symposium

This symposium features faculty members and graduate students from the English department, coming together to discuss teaching methods, strategies, and philosophies. The event will be conversational–brief presentations followed by infromal discussion about teaching. The event consists of two sessions: 1) “Pedagogical Ecologies” (1-2:30), and 2) “Classroom and/as Community (2:30-4:00). Each session is worth a credit towards the Western Certificate in University Teaching and Learning. Refreshments include bananas, coffee, and more!


About uwoges

The Graduate English Society (GES) at Western University is a student organization that, through its various events and services, fosters a sense of social as well as academic community among the English graduate students currently in attendance at Western. We also facilitate communication between graduate students and faculty in an effort to promote intradepartmental camaraderie and to present graduate student concerns to the administration. All students in the graduate program in English at Western are members of the GES. Through the GES, students can voice and address matters common to the graduate student body. We hold meetings approximately once or twice a semester which are open to all members. We also elect members to various GES Service Positions where they represent student interests. In addition, the GES serves both professional and social purposes, sponsoring academic events and parties.
