Naming, Claiming, and Aiming our Teaching Discomforts

(3:30 pm NDT; 3:00 pm ADT; 1:00 pm CDT; 12:00 pm MDT; 11:00 am PDT)

As we are scrambling to convert our courses to online, remote, and hybrid delivery in response to the pandemic, many of us are climbing a very steep learning curve that challenges our sense of competency and identity as teachers. In this webinar, we ask how we can “name, claim and aim” (Parker Palmer) our effective responses to this rapid and radical “retooling” of our teaching to learn about ourselves and our students in a time of crisis. How can we “step back” to reflect on our own responses and engage meta-cognitively with difficult learning in order to make our practice more intentional, compassionate, and empathetic?

Conversation facilitated by Lisa Dickson, Shannon Murray, and Jessica Riddell.
