This cohort-based series will focus on some of the big issues and questions in postsecondary teaching and learning. Together we will explore what researchers currently know about how learning actually happens, discuss how to plan lessons that enhance learning, then dive into some practical applications. Each participant will have the opportunity to highlight a current issue in postsecondary education—possibilities include but are not limited to equity and inclusion, indigenization, and student accommodation—and design a learning activity for the group. We will also focus on how to give and receive high quality feedback that supports both teaching and learning?
