Playing in the Sandbox: Conversations in Pedagogy

What defines a great professor? Playing in the Sandbox: Conversations in Pedagogy is a podcast series that answers this question with one word: play.  Most will agree that the best professors and instructors of higher education are those who promote (and exemplify) passion, curiosity, exploration, experimentation, and the willingness to fail and try again. In other words, as this podcast argues, the best professors are those who meaningfully and thoughtfully play.

Join Katherine A. Troyer, the Assistant Director of the Collaborative, as she discusses a different aspect or issue of pedagogy in each episode and addresses how we can use existing conversations in the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL), and evidence-based methods of teaching to deeply and seriously play!
