UTokyo Global FD Workshop - Prof. Kimberly Hutchings
15:30 - 17:00
Komaba Campus, The University of Tokyo
Techniques for Teaching Theory in the Classroom
This workshop focuses on the practical pedagogical challenges of teaching abstract theoretical material to undergraduate students. It focuses on the pros and cons of different pedagogical practices in relation to teaching theory, thinkers, concepts and ideologies in the social sciences and humanities. It is argued that although more didactic methods have their place in teaching theoretical material, the use of examples that speak directly to students, together with practical exercises, dialogue and recursive reiteration, are essential for students to be able to discriminate between different theoretical positions, as well as to deploy them in their own analyses and judgments. In this context, the workshop convenor also discusses the pedagogic thinking underlying the structure of her textbook, Global Ethics: An Introduction (Polity Press, 2010; 2nd edition in preparation).
