AIRB 1030

Date, Time, and Location: Wednesday, March 8th, 2023, 3:00pm to 4:30pm PST in AIRB 1030

Building a learning community in which students feel belonging, support, and connection with one another is vital for their success. But how can you develop such a community? In this workshop, you will participate in a series of collaborative activities, exercises, and discussions which convey best practices for successful classroom community-building.

After this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Summarize recent, peer-reviewed research on pedagogical community-building

  • Identify common barriers to community-building and develop tools to overcome them

  • Use simple, evidence-based practices to build community in your classroom

Facilitators: Megan Cole (megancole562@gmail.com) and Will Lee (joongwl@uci.edu), Senior Pedagogical Fellows
