Festival of Teaching Failures

May 9, 2019, 2:00pm
It's happened to all of us, even at Berkeley. We've written a bad exam, given a lecture that fell flat, designed an activity or assignment that was a waste of time, or looked into the blank, confused, disinterested (or perhaps even hostile) eyes of students. Come join your colleagues to share stories and celebrate our own learning process and survival as educators. Comfort food and soul food will be served.
