Prof. Hester Gelber: Getting Creative

Opportunities for students to be creative outside of arts classes are few. In my class, students engage with religious studies by creating their own short stories. They read science fiction and fantasy novels to explore our modern take on religion, join in intense discussion, and prepare their stories.

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.
