The Center for Teaching and Learning and the Committee on Teaching will host the Faculty Symposium Part 1 on Wednesday, Jan. 12, from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. via Zoom. This year’s theme will be “Teaching and Learning as a Radical Act of Hope in the 21st Century: Student Success Strategies, Metacognition, and Classroom Climate.”
The symposium will engage faculty in conversations about the post-pandemic world and ways on how the instructor can ensure students to leave the institutions ready for life and the world in the environment in where equity means more than ever.
This will be a day of inspiration, collaboration and learning how to address the students of today and tomorrow to ensure success for all in our classrooms. Blending cognitive science and learning theory, combined with inclusive practices, the discussion will be about providing approaches that are broadly applicable to all disciplines.
The symposium will feature Dr. Anton Treuer, professor of Ojibwe at Bemidji State University, and Dr. Saundra McGuire, emerita professor of chemical education at Louisiana State University.
