Using Research about Teaching

Dr Frances Garrett offers mid-career reflections about how she has used research on teaching to inform, deepen and inspire her own teaching practice. Frances is an associate professor of Buddhist Studies at University of Toronto, where she teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in Buddhist Studies and Tibetan Studies. Her research focuses on premodern relationships between religion and medicine in Tibet, among other things. This video is part of a series called How Do You Do It?, in which scholars of Buddhist Studies discuss how they manage various tasks critical to academic work. The series is sponsored by the Robert H.N. Ho Family Foundation Centre for Buddhist Studies at the University of Toronto and created by Dr Frances Garrett, who introduces the video. The music for the series is created by Dr Nic Bommarito, Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Simon Fraser University. See more at See for more on the Centre for Buddhist Studies.
