Join Anthropology faculty on a tour of classrooms and labs, including the Cultural and Linguistic Lab and the Biological Anthropology Lab.
Tour the Department of Anthropology
Hi and welcome. To this is our Cultural and Linguistic laboratory room. This is where we have active teaching on a regular basis. So right now you see it's set up for my team based classes. I teach my grant writing class for example in here. So our computers you'll see we have computers along the room this is for students to work together and do transcriptions. It's absolutely essential in linguistic anthropology that people can read out the details of speech and really understand the play that's involved in our regular speech. These are anthropology labs. And we are so lucky at Miami to have this fabulous teaching space. So we have a lab for the cultural and linguistic anthropology a separate one for our bioanthro and a separate one for archeology anthropology with all of our teaching collection. So students can have hands on learning.
Hello my name is Dr. Jeb Card. This is the Biological Anthropology teaching laboratory classroom. And in here we have about real archeological artifacts of a collection of about that I manage. And I work heavily with students. And they help manage what was at one time a museum collection. But as a department Miami's anthropology made the decision we'd rather have all of our students working with these assets rather than a small number which is a pretty amazing thing. You don't get this at other undergraduate institutions for the most part. This is one of the reasons why we're able to put students into good jobs into good grad schools and to get them to do what they really want to do.
Thank you for visiting with us in our teaching classroom laboratories for the Department of Anthropology at Miami. And I hope to see you here soon.
