“Things” can help us understand social identities, relationships, and practices in the medieval world, especially in situations where textual documentation is minimal or completely absent.

These workshops are designed to guide faculty and doctoral students through current issues in pedagogy and technology. All workshops will take place in the Collaborative Learning Space (formerly the "Teaching Lab") in the library. A workshop with two dates indicates that the workshop is repeated. Doctoral students who complete four of the seven workshops and submit a "Teaching Philosophy" to Dr. Kyle Schiefelbein-Guerrero qualify for receiving an official letter of completion.
