Event Description

Recent political and social events such as the pandemic, Black Lives Matter movement, and the recent presidential election have left instructors wondering how to integrate social change into the fabric of their course but don’t know how to start. In this virtual conversation, you will be introduced to a teaching “schema,” a dynamic, non-linear resource designed to aid you to integrate current events into your course in order to teach for positive social impact. Before the session, please take a quick look at the Schema here.

Registration is open to anyone currently teaching or who is currently an assistant in instruction in a for-credit course at WashU.

Prior registration is required, and participant limits are set at 20 to ensure that all will have the chance to discuss their ideas and concerns.
