With a goal of continuing discussion and dialogue, we are revisiting the content of two breakout sessions from the Fall Retreat. Thirty minutes will be dedicated to each session. The presenter(s) will open with a brief overview of the sessions' key concepts (10 minutes) followed by a small panel of faculty sharing how they are applying their session takeaways in the classroom (5+ minutes), and concluding with participants engaging in further discussion with Fall Faculty Meeting attendees (15 minutes). Our goal is to strengthen classroom communications by diving deeper into these topics.
