I hope this message finds you well, as you are in the midst of the return to on-campus teaching. Last week many of you participated in our Summer Academy event “Inclusive Teaching” with José Antonio Bowen. If you missed it, I invite you to watch the recording:
I found Dr. Bowen’s remarks to be both inspiring and useful as I consider how to create an optimal learning experience for my students this Fall.
- The Online Classroom Inventory has photos of every Chapman classroom as well as tutorials for the technology in the rooms.
- The EdTech team’s LinkTree has the most important links needed for every instructor.
- Schedule a Classroom Technology Training Appointment through this site.
- The Magna Campus Teaching Materials offer a wealth of training about specific teaching challenges.
Finally, I would like to close with two short videos that have inspired me as I have thought about how I will create a learning experience this Fall where all of my students feel a sense of belonging and safety.
First, Dr Robin Wall Kimmerer, Distinguished Teaching Faculty at SUNY, speaking about “Questions for a Resilient Future” and the power of gratitude and reciprocity:
Second, is this video from Dr. Brené Brown, speaking about Daring Classrooms
