Calling all Duke faculty—TeachX registration is now open!

From March 21-25, we are piloting a new week-long opportunity, TeachX, for Duke faculty members to visit selected classes offered by their colleagues across the university. Many Duke faculty from all schools and several institutes and initiatives have chosen to open up their classroom to Duke faculty colleagues during this week. TeachX will allow you to see what their colleagues are up to, to learn about pedagogical practices in other schools, and to observe and interact with students whom you wouldn’t typically meet.

Here’s how it works:

  1. You can browse the online catalog of over 115 undergraduate, graduate and professional courses – from seminars, to hybrid-flipped case studies, to Bass Connections teams, to large lecture classes.
  2. Then please register via the online registration portal for the class(es) you would like to visit. Registration is important, so that your hosting colleague knows who and how many visitors to expect, and in some cases to send material in advance. Some classes also have limited space or need special security access.

Questions can be directed to interdisciplinary@duke.edu.

The above is a visual representation of the Duke University faculty, based on 2005 graduate faculty connected by shared students. Permission to share this image in connection with TeachX has been granted by Jim Moody, professor of sociology here at Duke. Moody has published extensively in the field of social networks, methods, and social theory; and his data visualizations are both informative and strikingly beautiful.
