Thursday Classroom Tales promotes informal conversations about learning, teaching, and curricular development at Willamette University. It brings together colleagues every second Thursday at 4:15 to talk about challenges and successes and to consider new approaches and understandings.
Every semester we commit at least one meeting to an aspect each of general education, of high-impact pedagogies, of technology, of learning differences, and of inclusive pedagogy. However, we welcome requests for presentations and chats, which we will add to the schedule.
