Open to: All faculty, graduate students, and academic support staff
In higher education, we want learning to be relevant to students’ lives, but how often do we explicitly incorporate students’ lives--who they are, what they know, where they come from--into our teaching and research? How do we take an asset-based approach, drawing upon the diversity of Berkeley's student population as well as our own subject matter expertise, to create a richer learning experience for everyone? What does this look like across different disciplines and what's at stake?
Come hear a distinguished panel of Berkeley faculty share strategies and insights, then join in the discussion.
