Earth Ethics Ain't Easy
This evening will be entertaining, while taking on challenging topics on view in The World to Come: Art in the Age of the Anthropocene. The Harn will ask tough questions like: in the global battle of plants (and porpoises) versus plastics, whose side are we on in our hearts; and whose side are we on in our actions?

Team Teaching from Classroom to Gallery – for UF GAs, Instructors and Faculty

Have you ever thought about team-teaching a course at UF? Collaboration can energize our teaching just as it does our research. Through team-teaching, faculty are creating innovative undergraduate courses that would be impossible for a single faculty member to teach independently. Some of these courses collaborate across academic disciplines, while others collaborate with UF Libraries or the Harn Museum of Art. Some do both. 

This workshop features two team-taught courses that collaborated with the Harn: Women Writers & Classical Myths, and What Makes a Monster. Learn more about team teaching in collaborative spaces and start planning your adventure. A follow-up workshop on the nuts and bolts of developing a team-taught class will be held on February 22nd, 2019.
