As part of Teaching and Learning Services’ 30th Anniversary celebrations, please join for this special presentation by Fulbright Canada Distinguished Chair in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) professor Peter Felten.

Decades of research demonstrate that the quality of student-faculty and student-student interactions are foundational to engaging, inclusive, and purposeful learning. Educational relationships profoundly influence motivation, learning, belonging, and achievement for all students, and particularly for students from groups that been marginalized in higher education. Drawing on more that 400 interviews with students, faculty, and staff in the U.S., this interactive session will explore relationships as a flexible, scalable, equitable, and humane approach to ensuring that all students experience welcome and care, become inspired to learn, and explore the big questions that matter for their lives and our communities.
