Abstract

The discussion on Teaching Methods was conducted in cooperation with The George Washington University’s Research Program in Social and Organizational Learning. Its participants included university teachers from Albania, Serbia, Croatia, Macedonia, and Georgia who had come to the United States under the auspices of the United States State Department’s Junior Faculty Development Program and the Open Society Institute to learn about new teaching methods that they might use in their classes back home. This report describes seven conceptual policy possibilities pertaining to the introduction of new teaching methods that the teachers explored, developed, articulated, and tested during the course of their discussions. It also describes their concerns about introducing new teaching methods in their countries; their thoughts about the actions that might be taken to implement each of the conceptual possibilities that they developed; and their thoughts about the practical consequences that those actions might have for individuals, groups, institutions, and society at large. It does not, however, discuss the pros and cons of any particular teaching method, or even the ways in which different teaching methods might differ. The governance concerns and policy possibilities that are described in this report might thus apply to any teaching method that people might try to introduce into a country in which university teachers are being asked to change their ways
