Seminar on Teaching

The Seminar on Teaching is a seminar series for faculty, staff, and students of the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine. Sponsored by the Office of Academic and Student Affairs, the Seminar on Teaching began in 2007, providing a venue to enhance teaching excellence by focusing on teaching and learning related topics of interest. The Seminars are held each fall and spring semester on every other Friday, from noon to 1:00 p.m. in 215 Pomeroy.  Both internal and external speakers are included.  We hope you can join us!
