Intro to Philosophy…Department

At Texas Christian University, Introduction to Philosophy is team taught—and by “team” they mean the whole departmentas a brief article in the school paper describes.

[Assistant Professor Kelly] McCormick said she… enjoys the concept of team-teaching because each faculty member has the opportunity to introduce students to the different topics of philosophy they specialize in.

“We’re each teaching to our specialty,” McCormick said. “So, the students taking that course really get the best possible presentation of each of these different areas. So if there’s something that really grabs you, you’re getting a presentation of that material by the person you’re going to end up working with in future years.”

Any other schools do this? Has it worked well?
