  • Missed Connections?: A Study of Academics and Student Employment at Harvard

    In this session, hosted by the Research-Informed Teaching & Learning (RITL) TLC Affinity Group, HGSE Assistant Professor Anthony Abraham Jack will discuss findings from a chapter of his new book project, When Campus Closed: Inside the Upended World of Elite College. He examines how Harvard undergraduates with disparate pre-college experiences differ in their orientations toward seeking employment. In particular, Jack focuses on how these differences affect students' access to “life of the mind” opportunities that involve working with faculty—e.g., as course assistants, research assistants, or employees of teaching and learning centers. These findings have implications for Harvard faculty who serve as gatekeepers to many “life of the mind” positions in universities and for learning-and-teaching professionals who both support faculty members and directly employ students.

  • Motivating students to transition from learning-for-testing to learning-for-learning

    In his Statistical Mechanics and Thermodynamics course (a core class for physics concentrators) Matthew Schwartz, Professor of Physics, tries to move his students away from a binge-learning exam-based model, common in science classes, to one of sustained learning throughout the semester. To do this, he persuades students to read the course materials before class through comprehensive pre-class quizzes, replaces the midterm with a non-collaborative problem set, and assigns a take-home final weighted the same as two problem sets.
