Demonstrating Care: A Forum on Fall Teaching
Friday, September 25

The weeks before fall term are crowded with course preparations, meetings, workshops. We invite you to take a breath with us this last Friday before classes begin to consider how we can demonstrate the care and support for their well-being that our students may need.

Join us to discuss principles and concrete steps you can take to acknowledge emotions, support mental wellness, and teach from the heart, including ways to focus your efforts on practices that build community, empower students, and extend flexibility. We’ll consider how to ask students how they’re doing, the warning signs of distress, and how to refer them to campus partners that can help.

Coordinating Teaching Teams
Friday, October 2, 10:30am-noon
Email if you’d like to attend as a team and have a shared breakout room prepared for your group.

Especially in fall, when lectures and sections/labs may be taught across modalities—including asynchronous online, remote, and face to face for a single course—coordination across faculty and graduate student teams is crucial. Join us for advice about setting explicit expectations, defining roles, working together, and managing new tools and contingencies. Learn more here
