Call: “Intellectual Road Trip” Community of Practice

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.
