Guest Artist Master Class: Robert Dorer, trumpet

Visiting artist Robert Dorer will present a master class. Dorer joined the Minnesota Orchestra in 1997 as second trumpet after six seasons as principal trumpet with the New Mexico Symphony. He previously was a member of the Santa Fe Opera Orchestra, Santa Fe Pro Musica and Florida West Coast Symphony, and performed as guest principal with the New Zealand Symphony. He has performed as soloist with orchestras in Florida, North Carolina, New Mexico and Minnesota. This event is free and open to the public. 

Small Teaching: From Minor Changes to Major Learning

This is a faculty workshop provided by James Lang, professor of English and director of the Center for Teaching Excellence at Assumption College. Ongoing calls to revolutionize and revitalize higher education need balancing with the everyday work that many faculty do in educating their students in traditional classroom spaces or online environments. A small number of key principles from the learning sciences seem to have the power to make a substantial impact on student learning in almost any type of course, from traditional lectures to flipped classrooms.  This workshop will introduce some of those principles, drawing from recent publications in the learning sciences, and focus on how to use a variety of elements of course design and classroom practice—from the syllabus to the closing moments of class—to boost learning in powerful new ways. Advance registration is required.
