Duke's Unique Teaching Spaces: Duke Gardens
Duke Gardens is a 55-acre botanical garden, complete with Wi-Fi and outlets, right in the middle of campus. Faculty from all across Duke (Engineering, School of the Environment, Dance, Religious Studies, Computer Science, Psychology & Neuroscience, Romance Studies, and Writing, just to name a few) have developed assignments making use of the Gardens, held class outdoors, created undergraduate-level field trips that complement their curriculum, and conducted academic research in the Gardens.
In this session, hear about past & ongoing collaborations and discuss how you can make Duke Gardens a part of your class as you enjoy a spring tour of our space with Kati Henderson, Coordinator of Academic Programs at Duke Gardens.
Event location: Doris Duke Center, Duke Gardens, 420 Anderson Street, Durham.
