We take a first look at the theme for the 2019 University-Wide Teaching & Learning Symposium, Contemplative Teaching: Connecting Meaning, Purpose, and Values. Dana Karraker joins us to talk about this wide-ranging approach to making teaching a first-person act. We also talk mindfulness, posters, sessions, and preview both our keynote speaker’s morning workshop and luncheon talk. Plus, breaking news as Claire learns something unexpected about dessert.
The 2019 University-Wide Teaching & Learning Symposium will be held on Wednesday, January 9, at the Marriott Hotel and Conference Center in uptown Normal. The event is free for faculty, staff, and graduate students at Illinois State and other area institutions. Find out more and register before Friday, December 14, at CTLT.IllinoisState.edu/Symposium.
