Named after a former president of Harvard University, the Derek Bok Center for Teaching and Learning was established in 1975 to enhance the quality of undergraduate education at Harvard College. The site contains information specifically for affiliates of Harvard, much of which can be broadly applied to college instruction at other institutions. In the Resources & Advice area visitors can look over sections that include Syllabus Design, Course Assessment, Lecturing, Diversity in the Classroom, and Leading Discussions. In the materials section interested parties can look over tip-sheets and in-house videos on college teaching. Perhaps the most intriguing area is the "Harvardese" glossary. Here you will find teaching terms that provide insight into the lingua franca deployed within the ivy-covered walls of this august institution.
