Dan and Carole Burack President’s Distinguished Lecture Series

Present a Faculty Interactive Session with Kristen Renn, Ph.D.  

“At the Intersection of Teaching, Learning and Identity:

Creating Conditions to Support Success for Diverse Students”

Date: Monday, February 4th, 2013

Time: 9:00 – 11:30 AM 

This workshop will support participants in increasing their understanding of the practical and theoretical steps for creating more inclusive and critically engaging spaces for learning for all our students. 

At UVM we believe that diversity is an asset to institutions and to learning, yet as faculty / instructors we are challenged to create learning environments that are welcoming to all.

This session addresses the fact that students come to higher education from a variety of backgrounds, identities, and values.

REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED - ENDS Friday, February 1st, 2013
