Register for part two of Faculty Symposium by March 24

The Center for Teaching and Learning will hold part two of its symposium, titled “Teaching and Learning as a Radical Act of Hope in the 21st Century: Resilience and Joy in Post-Pandemic Teaching,” on Friday, March 25, from 9 a.m. until 10:30 a.m. This is a virtual event that will take place via Zoom.  

The COVID-19 pandemic required us to teach in new formats, using technology in new ways to help students learn. While at times challenging, collective experience has shown that we are willing and able to adapt our teaching methods to overcome such challenges.

The symposium will reflect on:  

  • How we can create rewarding teaching and learning interactions that welcome and support today’s students, providing both flexibility and rigor for all 
  • Lessons learned that enable us to rediscover meaning, purpose and fulfillment in our teaching in all class formats
  • How contemplation and mindfulness can support student success 

Flower Darby, co-author of “Small Teaching Online: Applying Learning Science in Online Classes,” will be the facilitator at this event.  

Register online by Thursday, March 24.
