Teachers Talking

Good Conversation. Free Lunch.


The Kendall Center’s "Teachers Talkings" are opportunities for faculty and staff to share information with colleagues that is relevant to teaching in its broadest form (e.g, advising, assessment, student support, etc.). We will be moving to an online format for Teachers Talking in Fall 2020 and would love input on what you would like to learn more about or have the opportunity to discuss with colleagues in this format. Please email Hayley Russell (hrussell@gustavus.edu) if you are interested in leading a "Teachers Talking" session in the Fall of 2020 or have an idea for a session you would like someone else to lead. All ideas are welcomed and encouraged!

Asynchronous content will be shared on Moodle by the Teachers Talking presenters and there will be two synchronous online sessions to discuss the topic with the presenters and colleagues

Thursday, September 10, 2020
The first Teachers Talking of the year will be on "Demystifying the Course Approval Process" presented by Dean Valerie Banschbach, Kate Knutson, and Hayley Russell.

Teachers Talking on Nobel 2020
Are you trying to figure out how to best incorporate the Nobel Conference into your classes this fall and beyond? Are you curious about what the 2020 Nobel Conference will really look like now that we don't have a thousand visitors coming to campus? Join 2020 Nobel Conference co-chairs Laura Burrack and Dwight Stoll as well as the Nobel Conference director Lisa Heldke for a discussion of how the virtual conference content can synergize with your teaching. Information about Nobel 2020 is linked through the Teachers Talking Moodle page.
