Prof. Mehran Sahami: Engaging Undergraduates in Learning, Teaching, and Research

Stanford undergraduates are wonderfully smart and motivated.  They are also often over-committed and time constrained.  I’ll share some thoughts gleaned over the years for strategies to help engage such energetic, busy students in different aspects of learning, teaching, and research.

The Center for Teaching and Learning's longest-running lecture series, Award-Winning Teachers on Teaching, invites faculty winners of Stanford's major teaching awards to deliver a lecture on a teaching topic of their choice. 

Audience members are encouraged to bring a brown-bag lunch. All talks are free and open to the public; no reservation required. Drinks and desserts are served.
