Zoomcasts

Overview

These Zoomcasts serve as a mechanism for us to stage conversations around specific themes, think together about our classroom practices, and reflect on our processes of learning (and un-learning) as teachers. In conversation with guest speakers, we explore how we can grow together as a community of scholars and learn from one another – especially in moving beyond the boundaries of our field and training.
