Princeton Teaching Week (PTW), a new initiative from the McGraw Center, will focus attention on the University’s commitment to the advancement of teaching and learning. The week of programs will highlight new curricular pathways, the range and variety of pedagogical methods, and the engagement of students in varied forms of learning. We seek to spark conversation about teaching across departments and programs – to that end, we are delighted to announce that faculty and graduate students from across the disciplines will open their classrooms to other faculty and graduate students for observation and reflection.
