GWs Luther W. Brady Art Gallery has been showcasing art on the universitys Foggy Bottom campus for 15 years. The new exhibition, Drawn From: 15 Years of Exhibitions at the Luther W. Brady Art Gallery, celebrates highlights from the gallerys history and the universitys extensive art collection and new gifts of work by Howard Hodgkin and Holly Trostle Brigham. Past exhibitions highlighted in the new show fall into three categories: historical, thematic, and major modern and contemporary artists. Collaborations include an exhibition with the Picker Art Gallery, Colgate University, followed by collaborations with the Reading Public Museum, Demuth Museum, Stetson University and New Art Centre in UK, among others have extended the ability to show artists of international scope. Beginning with Epic Paintings in 2002, ongoing relationships with New York institutions and major artists have brought the GW Community into contact with art never before seen in Washington. By joining university-wide initiatives, such as in Imagination and Knowledge: Centennial Celebration of Einsteins Miraculous Year, when Einsteins personal effects were on view alongside photographs of the man, scientific input from the Physics Department enriched the educational impact of the initiative. Exhibitions such as Enlightened Thinking, Lasting Appeal responded to a citywide celebration of French culture and featured Henry Bacons The Boston Boys and General Gage 1775, a major work in the GW collection. The Luther W. Brady Art Gallery is the professional showcase for art at GW. Luther W. Brady (B.A. '46, M.D. '48), the gallery's namesake and benefactor, is a world-renowned oncologist who earned his undergraduate and graduate degrees at GW. He also received the honorary degree of doctor of fine arts from GW in May 2004, has served as a member of the University's Board of Trustees and received the Presidents Medal in 2015. Over the past 15 years, the gallery has created a niche in the community fo...

Teaching Day 2017   8:30 AM - 3:30 PM
GW’s seventh annual Teaching Day takes place Thursday, September 28, 2017 in the Marvin Center. All GW faculty are invited to attend some or all of the sessions at no charge. Registration is requested for the luncheon and keynote session. To reserve your spot, visit go.gwu.edu/TeachingDay2017. 9:00-11:45a Concurrent Sessions by GW Faculty: Explorations in Teaching GW faculty present short, practice-focused workshops on a wide-range of topics.

Sessions will run concurrently at: 9:00 – 9:45a -- Session #1 10:00 – 10:45a -- Session #2 11:00 – 11:45a -- Session #3 12:00 – 2:00p Faculty Luncheon and Keynote Active Learning vs. Lecturing: A New Evidence-Based Perspective on an Old Debate with Dr. Todd Zakrajsek, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Has a grave error been made in higher education with respect to effective teaching? There is a long list of research studies showing that including active and engaged techniques to the classroom benefits student learning. That said, the research does not state that all lectures are ineffective or that one should never lecture. In the debate of active learning versus the lecture, we rarely hear of the many types of lectures or the hundreds of types of active learning. The statement “active learning is more effective than lecturing” is simply too general to be of value. In this session, we will discuss the common types of lectures, components of any good lecture, what makes lectures ineffective at times, and most importantly, demonstrate effective engaged learning techniques to add to your teaching repertoire. 2:00-3:30p GW Faculty Poster Session: Scholarship of Teaching & Learning (SoTL) Initiatives The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL), research on your teaching, is a growing area of r...

In an illustration from Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan’s official chronicle, the Padshahnama, lavish textiles are part of a royal procession for the delivery of gifts (sachaq) for Prince Dara Shikoh’s wedding. Through examining Mughal fabrics in The Textile Museum collections, Andrea Gallelli Huezo, operations supervisor for GW Department of Fine Arts and Art History, will discuss how Shah Jahan’s strategic inclusion of velvets, banners, and other sumptuous textiles in the sachaq illustrates his intent to establish his son Dara Shikoh as the rightful heir of the Mughal Empire. This program is part of the museum's weekly Textiles at Twelve series, which explores the textile arts and global cultures through films, lectures, gallery talks, and more. Free, no reservations required.

Where did you learn how to learn and how to study? It is an odd question, as you have been doing it for a very long time, and since you’re in college, you’re clearly pretty good at it. That said, what if the strategies you use to study are not the most effective ways to learn? This session is not about spending more time studying, but rather how to study and learn better. The overall goal of this session is for you to better understand how your brain works when processing information and specific strategies you can employ to become a more effective learner. This session is for both faculty and students. This workshop is part of the Build Your Skills Workshop Series, which features practical, hands-on instruction in useful skills you may not learn in class. Other workshops in this Fall 2017 series are Programming with Python, Collaborating Using Github, Learn Linux Shell, Working with Secure Technologies, Using Google Forms, Google Drive: File Management & Beyond, Crossing the Finish Line: Uploading Your Electronic Thesis or Dissertation (ETD), Study Less….Learn More: Understanding the New Science of Learning, and Intro to 3D Modeling with Tinkercad. All sessions will be first-come, first served.
