Student Voices: Finding the Bright Spots

Wednesday, November 4 2020, 12:30 PM

The idea for this session is very simple. Several students will talk about approaches to virtual/blended instruction that have been working for them. This is an opportunity to take our thinking beyond the stress and pressure of the summer and get a clear sense of how our efforts are landing: in the chaos of this crazy fall, what’s actually working?

Anti-Racist Pedagogies

This moment in history insists that we attend in explicit and deliberate ways to racism in every context. These resources are just a beginning to that work.

Virtual Instruction

W&L prides itself on the quality of its faculty-student interactions. Very often, that means face-to-face interactions. Unfortunately, the present moment requires us to adapt to a variety of different modes of instruction. Here are a variety of resources for faculty in all fields.

CARPE News #23–Valuable information for you and your students

Hello, all: I hope this finds you well, and that, despite everything, the prospect of returning to the classroom (virtual, or otherwise) is giving you energy and hope. It's been a long summer, with lots of workshops and lots of reading and lots of worry. Fair enough.

Consultations and Observations
