The Anthropology Teaching Forum (ATF) is just starting up at the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA). Without alcohol, tobacco, or firearms, we are armed with intense passion in innovative and effective pedagogy specifically related to the discipline of anthropology. Our monthly meetings will focus on important aspects of anthropology pedagogy through a workshop emphasis. See the Schedule. Faculty and grad students gather to discuss significant topics such as assessment, course design, and student concerns centered on a discussion leader’s experience and/or future plans. Meeting attendees are asked to contribute their thoughts and ideas to improve the quality of specific ideas for teaching anthropological topics in university courses. We have great hopes for the future of ATF and enhancing innovative pedagogy in anthropology classes. We have established ourselves as group of anthropology educators at UTSA, however, we hope to expand our membership beyond UTSA and San Antonio.
