CMU faculty, postdocs, graduate students, and staff participated in the second annual Teaching & Learning Summit on October 19th to celebrate and showcase over 50 exciting ideas and evidence-based approaches that our colleagues are applying here at CMU and beyond. We joined together to hear about new instructional strategies and technologies, to learn about educational research by CMU instructors and learning scientists, and to share ideas and experiences.

Summit agenda:

Dr. Sara Armstrong from the University of Michigan's Center for Research on Learning and Teaching presents the CRLT Players for a highly interactive session on inclusive teaching strategies.

Participants will be presented with research-based scenarios regarding how students can be marginalized, explicitly or implicitly, in the college classrooms. Participants will engage in guided roundtable discussions on the issues raised and how to apply evidence-based strategies for creating a welcoming learning environment that supports learning for all students.
