Someday, this semester will end, and we’ll look around, dazed, and start thinking about what it all means. The work of reflection is made richer when it is done with others— so that our own perspectives are contextualized and the possibilities for future action open up.
The Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning (CATL) and the Center for Civic Engagement (CCE) invite you to join on a week-long intellectual journey that focuses on trying to understand what COVID-19 has meant and will mean for our community at UWGB. We also seek ways to move forward individually and collectively to create the institution we need, while also questioning who is included in the “we.” CCE and CATL invite members of the UWGB community who wish to explore these questions with us so that we can get a sense of where we’ve just been and how we might orient our campus community towards a just future.
Please read the call for instructions on how to sign-up and more about the “rules of the road.”
A few of the topics we’ll explore collectively are:
- Ways incorporate discussions of the pandemic into courses through disciplinary lenses/contexts
- Ways to incorporate a framework – such as Universal Design, Community of Inquiry, or Open Pedagogy – into courses/curriculum, which will enhance instruction in all modalities and make the pivot between modalities easier.
- Ways to connect across disciplinary, staff/faculty and other divides to consider how to best support and build sustainable and meaningful community
- Other ideas suggested by our fellow travelers
There’s room for 40 on this journey and participants will receive a $100 stipend.
Apply by May 8.
Watch for a date the week of March 30-April 3

Please sign up for a book here!
When: April 5, 2019 from 10-11 AM
Where: Theatre Hall 316, UW-Green Bay Campus

While collaborative and group-based learning is on the rise, students are often unaware of the stereotypes and biases that inform group dynamics, student learning, and work productivity. Drawing on recent research on equitable team dynamics, this workshop will allow us to discuss how instructors may use equity-based methods to support the creation of group procedures and dynamics that work to minimize stereotyping and bias.

Peter Levine (Assoc Dean of Citizenship and Public Affairs, Tufts University) argues that the answer to the fractiousness of our society and the breakdown of civil society lies with greater civic engagement. We’ll be discussing his book We are the ones we have been waiting for, which considers both the values that we need to re-invigorate our society as well as strategies to strengthen participatory democracy through greater civic engagement.
