The Texas Tech Philosophy Third Annual Graduate Student Conference on metaethics kicks off this Friday, April 3. Graduate students from around the country will be presenting papers, and many of our own graduate students will be commenting. The keynote speaker will be Geoffrey Sayre-McCord from UNC-Chapel Hill. You can access Prof. Sayre-McCord's website here:
And the conference schedule here:
The Stanford Encyclopedia entry on metaethics would also be something useful to look at:
Hope to see you there!

If you were a student in my teaching seminar last semester, I know you are already shuddering at the post's title. Take a look at this NY Times article about active learning in intro physics classes at MIT (& other schools)--then take a look at the comments, especially the ones from MIT students who actually have to take those "TEAL" classes: they tell very different stories. Is the new style of classroom and teaching the way to go? How do we know what's the best teaching method?
