The Misc has invited Vassar professors to submit any materials they may have accumulated while teaching online this semester to make them available for public viewing. We hope to provide a space for students and community members alike to explore Vassar’s educational offerings—or perhaps to simply spend an afternoon learning something new. The collection below includes subjects ranging from Art History to Astronomy to Computer Science to Philosophy and more. Some are general and some more specialized, but all demonstrate the ways our professors tackle their subject matter and convey knowledge to students.
We may not be able to loiter outside a classroom and catch snatches of an interesting discussion during this time, but these professors have generously opened up their digital classrooms to us. These open lectures combine great educational value with entertainment value for those of us looking for productive ways to spend time. Please enjoy browsing!
