Embodied pedagogies focus on the mind, body, and movement in the learning process. Are you curious about embodied pedagogies as tools to promote creativity and connection? Are you interested in learning more about how embodied teaching can cultivate new possibilities for the classroom, including non-performance/arts environments? Workshop RSVP
In this interactive workshop led by Dr. Theresa Ronquillo, we will engage in a series of embodied pedagogical activities and discuss applications in your own learning environments. No previous theater or performance experience necessary. Participants do not need to self-identify as “creative” to glean tools from this workshop.
January 10th, 11th and 13th, 2023
More information forthcoming.

This year's Provost Retreat on Teaching and Learning focused on metacognition which is the ability to identify and utilize methods of learning that will be most effective for solving a particular problem or question and to assess one’s own learning in order to improve retention and transferability. Dr. Saundra McGuire’s keynote addressed the need for all students to develop metacognitive skills and introduced practical strategies for integrating metacognitive practices into our classes.
The CTL is working to support reflection and action on being an anti-racist (pro-black), equity-minded educator and human. The links below have many resources including key take-aways and the reading list for Spring 2021's Anti-Racist Pedagogy Conversations. We continue to curate resources and are focused on building the capacity and infrastructure necessary for more accessible cross-departmental idea sharing and conversations.
