Virtual Conversation with Jonathan Zimmerman

Virtual October 22, 2020

On Thursday, October 22 at 7pm ET, Heterodox Academy will be hosting a virtual Conversation with Jonathan Zimmerman. Zimmerman, a founding member of HxA, is a professor of history of education at the University of Pennsylvania and was recently awarded the Berkowitz Chair in Education. His upcoming book, “The Amateur Hour: A History of College Teaching in America,” is the first book-length history of America’s college teaching and will be published at the end of October.

Zimmerman will be joined by Amna Khalid, HxA’s John Stuart Mill Fellow, for a public conversation exploring the main ideas of his book – the history of college teaching, institutional efforts to improve it, higher education’s relatively recent transitions, and what changes he concludes are needed to elevate teaching for the future.

Registration for this event is open to all and is available on a first-come first-served basis.

We will also be holding a book club for our members to discuss “The Amateur Hour: A History of College Teaching in America” — more information to come.
