On Tuesday, December 4, 2012, Dr. Alan Harrison, Provost and Vice-Principal (Academic) in collaboration with the Centre for Teaching and Learning, hosted this year's Teaching Awards Reception for winners of all Queen's University teaching awards in the 2011/2012 academic year.
Guest Speaker Alan Ableson spoke about the idea of having an empty chair in our classrooms, used as an invitation to colleagues to come and observe teaching. Dr. Ableson has learned from many of his colleagues in this way and encourages more of us to open our classrooms to another level of learning about teaching.
