Virtual Classroom Visit: Sarah Pinto, Bodies in Motion

These videos are part of an ongoing project by Phil Gay and David Hammer called Student Centered Teaching at Tufts. Videographers visit classes around campus to record faculty members in the process of teaching in their classrooms, and to hear each faculty member’s reflections afterward, as they observe themselves interacting with students.

Sarah Pinto’s Fall 2015 undergraduate anthropology class, Bodies in Motion, visited the exhibit, “Manna” at the Tufts Art Gallery. The exhibit shared masterworks from the Tufts University permanent collection, and students explored how bodies can be represented and interpreted in political, historical, or socio-economic ways. Professor Pinto reflects on the visit as a pedagogical experiment, putting her in an interesting position of learner and professor.
