The Hamilton College Summer Program in Philosophy (HCSPiP) brings together creative teachers, ambitious undergraduates, and engaging graduate students, for three concurrent, innovative, two-week courses in philosophy. The program culminates, for faculty, in a conference on pedagogy at which the three instructors of the courses will present their work. At the conference, instructors share their experiences, what they tried and what they learned. Presenters are encouraged to focus on general, transferable pedagogical skills so that the conference will be useful for instructors in a wide range of disciplines.
