A Blog Around The Clock

Came to my e-mail inbox:

The Harvard Summer School is pleased to announce the addition of a
three-day special seminar for teachers in the sciences. Based on the
well-known “Chautauqua Seminars” model, there is no cost to participants
other than a $50 registration fee. The course is taught by distinguished
Harvard faculty and provides an opportunity for invited scholars to share
new knowledge, concepts, and techniques directly with teachers in ways
which are immediately beneficial to their teaching. The primary aim of
this rejuvenating session is to enable teachers to keep their teaching
current with respect to both content and pedagogy.

This course will be of interest to graduate students considering teaching,
high school teachers, and college professors in the sciences.

Harvard University; and Steven W. Lockley, assistant professor at Harvard

Application should be made as early as possible and will be considered on
a space-available basis until the start of each course.
