Centre Trail Podcast 9: Experimenting in Intensive Winter Terms

Tara and John return for our first podcast in 2018 to talk about how they utilize the intensive “CentreTerm” class as a platform for experimenting with topics and pedagogy. Tara discusses her brand new class on alternative histories and John discusses his class on history and video games, which he is teaching for the third time in four years.

Join us to hear about how why we think the winter term is a good fit for trying new ideas. We have our students for three hours every day, and our class is the only one they are taking for sixteen class days. It is very challenging… and can get very tiring in a hurry… but the experience can lead to very rewarding results.
