Faculty Profile

Megan Lewis on Collaborative Learning
Assistant Professor | Theater

“To understand what I think about collaborative learning, you have to understand what I think about theater.”

Dr. Megan Lewis shares her experiences with team-based learning in the first of 22 interviews that TEFD conducted over the last several months with faculty engaged in collaborative and critical teaching practices. Each faculty interview will yield a long-form video on a theme—in this case collaborative learning—and a few shorter, more in-depth videos on specific topics of common interest. Videos will be published throughout the summer on TEFD's Faculty Voices page. Thanks to Dr. Lewis and the other extraordinary faculty who have shared their expertise.
