Promising Practices: Learning from Our Community

On April 18, 2018, the Searle Center for Advancing Learning and Teaching will host a half-day event for faculty, graduate students, postdocs, and staff who teach to explore issues of inclusion, equity and diversity in learning and teaching; and engage in discussion around promising practices for inclusive teaching and learning at our community.
