Mini-Series 1: The Evolving Landscape of Higher Education
Historically, COVID has been the biggest disruption to the landscape of higher education. Students are living a myriad of experiences, and their needs and perceptions of the college experience have changed. In this mini-series, learn how to prioritize multiple dimensions of wellness and foster a campus culture of care to increase academic performance, retention, and graduation for all.


Onwards to Better: Teaching and Learning in Fall '21 Regan A. R. Gurung, Ph.D.; Cub Kahn, Ed.D.; & Marc Cholewczynski, B.A.
During remote learning, students conducted all their learning activities via a computer and instructors often provided notes, slides, and lecture recordings. As we return to classrooms, what should stay? What did we learn about teaching and learning during the pandemic and how should it inform Fall 2021 and help stay sane and healthy.

Dharma will also highlight key support services on campus for 2SLGBTQI+ students and engage the learning impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic these student communities.


Emotionally Intelligent Teaching Shauna Tominey, Ph.D.
The past year has been like no other. With a global pandemic, heightened attention to racial justice, political divides, and natural disasters-students are on an emotional rollercoaster (and instructors are, too)! Join Dr. Shauna Tominey to discuss strategies for emotionally intelligent teaching that can be applied in many different class contexts toward recognizing the impact of stress on learning and building meaningful connections with students.  


Trauma-Informed College Teaching: Prepare, Respond, Restore Jeff Kenney, Ph.D.
Increasing numbers of students are participating in higher education with complex trauma histories. Trauma history complicates our assumptions about the theory and practice of adult learning. This workshop will provide resources and skill building to prepare for, respond to, and recover from expressions of trauma in the college classroom.

Mini-Series 2: Addressing Educational Inequities
Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is an approach to designing courses with: 1) multiple representations of information; 2) alternative means of expression; and 3) varied options for engagement. In this mini-series, learn how to apply principles of UDL to address educational inequities at the intersections of ability, race, language, gender, and class differences.


Culturally Sustaining Pedagogy Ann Sitomer, Ph.D.
What do mean by culturally 'relevant', 'responsive' and 'sustaining' pedagogies? In this T4 session we will reflect on Django Paris's term 'culturally sustaining pedagogy' and its relationship to Gloria Ladson-Billings' ground-breaking construct of 'culturally relevant pedagogy,' while unpacking why this all matters in postsecondary education. Finally, we will discuss teaching strategies that are both culturally sustaining and true to the principles of Universal Design for Learning.


Make Content Stick! Satoris (Tori) Howes, Ph.D. & Amy Hunter, M.A.
In this T4 presentation, we will discuss strategies from the bestselling book Made to Stick for making content more memorable. We will provide examples of varied approaches to incorporating these strategies into the design and teaching of your course.

Want to ensure your students actually read what you give them? Design faculty members Christine Gallagher, Deann Garcia, and Andrea Marks will teach easy-to-apply design principles that you can put into practice today. This will be an interactive workshop during which the faculty leaders will offer a range of practical tips and lead you through how to apply them to your own course materials.


Using UDL to Address How we Assess Raven Chakerian, M.A.; Hayden Wilcox, B.F.A.; & Amy Hunter, M.A.

Mini-Series 3: +1 Frameworks
Thomas Tobin (2018) is known for the 'plus-one' approach for implementing UDL – taking what might otherwise seem like an insurmountable amount of effort and breaking it down into manageable chunks. In this mini-series, learn various frameworks and quick strategies to +1 your course.
