Virtual Lunch and Learn & Best Practices in Teaching

Wednesday, March 3, 2021 - 12:00pm to Thursday, March 4, 2021 - 12:55pm

In bi-weekly Virtual Lunch and Learn & Best Practices in Teaching gatherings Graduate Teaching Assistants share their knowledge about teaching, teaching and technology tools as well as discuss research of teaching, book chapters relevant to work in an instructional setting. Anyone interested in these topics can join these meetings.

Topic: Mindset & Empathy in the College Classroom 

Although empathy and mindset are attracting attention among educators because of their potential to change students’ behaviors, how they learn, and how students and instructors relate to one another, they are often overlooked as instructors think about their teaching pedagogy and practices. During this session we will consider research and share stories, tools, and strategies that can be used to move empathy and mindset from the sidelines to the front and center of our work. 

Facilitated by Mary Beth Heeder, Office of the Associate Provost of UG Education
