Teaching Commons Fall Forum on Teaching & Learning: Race & Social Identity in the Classroom

October 20, 2017
9:30am
Lincoln Park Student Center

Each year the Fall Forum on Teaching and Learning brings together members of DePaul community to connect with one another and share strategies for teaching and learning. The Fall Forum kicks off the academic year with an event focused on pedagogy, complementing the annual Teaching and Learning Conference in the spring. This will be the first Fall Forum in which students are playing a large role—both as part of the planning process and as participants.

This year's theme, Race and Social Identity, is especially important to the DePaul community given the university's commitment to creating and maintaining an inclusive learning environment. We are intentionally linking this theme to DePaul's commitment to the education of a diverse student body, which is stated in our university mission statement and which connects to our institution’s Catholic and urban character.
