Dear Colleagues,

I hope this message finds you well, as you are in the midst of the Fall semester. In August 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.

I want to share a handful of other links that you may find helpful as you are adapting back to the pace of campus life:QR code linking to Tech Assist site

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

With Gratitude,

Jana Remy
