The campus community is invited to attend the university’s annual Teaching and Learning Symposium. Events will take place virtually the morning of Thursday, May 19, 2022.
The past two years have been incredibly challenging. Teaching and learning has been an especially taxing and emotional journey during the global pandemic, underscored further by issues of isolation, social turmoil and systemic inequity. These, among others, have contributed to stress and burnout for instructors and students alike. This year’s symposium will highlight what we have learned about attending to our own well-being and how we can lift each other up in community. The discussion will include strategies, campus resources, and a look at systemic ways we can continue to build an inclusive community of care at UW-Madison.
We are pleased to host Dr. Liza Talusan, a nationally recognized facilitator, education and strategic change partner, in conversation with our teaching and learning community to address self-care during social change. Please join us for a morning of engagement with these topics as we consider what lies ahead of us. May this be a time to breathe, to recover, to connect with colleagues and to attend to our own wellbeing.
