Theme: Developing Pedagogy that Fosters Anti-Racism
Registration is now open and can be accessed at the link below.
What are some examples of pedagogies that foster anti-racism? How can LUC educators view their courses through an anti-racist lens? How can we develop teaching and learning practices that foster anti-racism? This spring’s Focus on Teaching and Learning Conference will address questions like these. Faculty will share examples of strategies and approaches they use to design learning experiences in ways that support anti-racist pedagogy. Sessions will be led by small groups of speakers. Staff from the Provost’s Office will share the latest on anti-racist initiatives that support anti-racist pedagogy.
FOTL will take place over Zoom on January 14, 2021 from 9AM-1PM REGISTER
New dates have been added for two additional Anti-Racist Pedagogy Discussion Circles: Thursday, November 19, 2020 and December 10, 2020 from 4:30-5:30pm.
Description: Hundreds of faculty members participated in Loyola's Anti-Racist Pedagogy workshop series over the summer. Now that the semester has begun, faculty have asked for an opportunity to gather with colleagues to discuss and share their experiences with the application of anti-racist values, strategies, and tactics this semester. Please join the conversation to share, listen, and continue learning from and with one another. Questions can be directed to Bridget Colacchio Wesley at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Share some virtual lunch with colleagues while you exchange ideas about what you can do to enhance student learning this semester. Each lunch and learn will begin with a brief presentation about the topic from a member of the FCIP team. Then, colleagues will be invited to engage in open discussion related to the topic. Depending on the size of the groups, break out rooms may be used.
The August 2020 Focus on Teaching and Learning was held on August 13, 2020. This year's conference was held completely online and focused on questions of online teaching and learning. Recordings and edited chat transcripts of the sessions are now available. LEARN MORE
