Reflective Teaching Community

reflective teaching community

Are you looking for new ways to deliver your course content that move beyond the traditional lecture? Are you curious about exploring new techniques for determining if your students truly understand the course material? Perhaps you are just simply looking for a way to “shake things up” and increase student engagement? Do you wish there was a forum where you could share your teaching experiences and learn from others? Join your fellow Webster faculty members at the Reflective Teaching Community to discuss these issues and much more.

The Reflective Teaching Community (RTC) meets monthly to discuss topics in teaching and learning in a supportive environment of like-minded colleagues. We invite all full-time and part-time faculty and academic partners to join us as we share teaching perspectives and experiences across disciplines.

2020-21 Theme

Antiracist Teaching

This year in the RTC, we will reflect on our own relationships to racism and privilege, develop skills for identifying racism within our own classrooms, and build teaching practices that promote equity.
Part I of the year's study will run fall to spring and will be focused on self-reflection and foundational principles in antiracist teaching that will equip us as more equitable teachers. Part II will run summer 2021 and will be focused on facilitating dialogues with our students about race and racism. We ask that if you are planning to attend the Part II discussions that you please attend at least 3 of the Part I discussions, or read all of the Part I readings on your own.

For more information and to sign up to receive updates, please fill out the RSVP form.
