Virtual Conversations on Teaching and Learning for Social Impact

Recent political and social events such as the pandemic, the Black Lives Matter movement, and the presidential election have left instructors wondering how to integrate social change into the fabric of their courses. Register now to take part in a virtual conversation that will introduce you to a teaching schema—a dynamic, non-linear resource that will help you integrate current events into your courses in order to teach for positive social impact.

The schema is a collaborative project made possible by the Gephardt Institute for Civic and Community Engagement, Arts and Sciences, and the Center for Teaching and Learning with additional contributions from others around Washington University in St. Louis.

The schema was designed by Cassie Power, Associate Director for Faculty and Academic Engagement; Amanda Albert Instructional Specialist; Denise Leonard, Associate Director for Educational Development; Emily Stenberg, Scholarly Publishing and Digital Scholarship,  Manager, and Elizabeth Salley, Marketing and Communications Assistant, Gephardt Institute for Civic and Community Engagement.
