Food for Thought

Join us for lunch discussions on different aspects of Students' Learning and Innovative Teaching Approaches. The discussions are offered on two different days to accommodate your teaching schedule. They provide a forum for networking and exchanging ideas with colleagues across campus; there are no structured presentations or "experts."

Bring your lunch, your teaching stories, your ideas, successes, and challenges. We provide the venue and refreshments. Come any time between 11:30 a.m. and 12:45 p.m., stay as long as you wish. Kindly RSVP in advance. We look forward to your joining the discussions!

October 20 OR 21 - Link to RSVP by 10-16

Supporting Inclusive and Interactive Classrooms. On the surface our classes might look homogenous; yet upon a closer look we recognize our students’ diverse backgrounds, interest, experiences, and aspirations. How do we celebrate this diversity and work with our students to create and sustain a safe, supportive, interactive learning environment that promotes mutual respect and thoughtfulness?

Join the conversation to reflect on actual classroom scenarios and discuss ways to intentionally make our classes more inclusive. Terry Nance, Assistant Vice President, Multicultural Affairs and Brighid Dwyer, Assistant Director, Diversity Research and Training will share their experiences.
