About HGSE Master Class
Master Class is a series at HGSE celebrating inspiring teaching in its many forms. Each event is 90 minutes in length and involves a demonstration of teaching followed by a reflective discussion with the participants. The “demonstration” part of the time is intended to be an authentic experience of learning for members of the audience, drawing on the faculty member’s chosen teaching approach and topic. The “reflection” part is a dialogue in which the faculty member shares his or her pedagogical assumptions, intentions, and moves, and engages in a discussion with the audience that “pulls back the curtain.” Each Master Class is open to the entire Harvard community.
