Talking About Teaching
Traditional approaches to lectures, assignments, and grading aren’t always effective. Students have complicated lives outside of class. Faculty members must decide how much flexibility to give them, and how accessible to be. All of that was true before the pandemic, but the past two years have made those problems harder to ignore.
How can you improve your teaching this semester?
You’ll learn from our expert panelists:
- Isis Artze-Vega, Vice President for Academic Affairs, Valencia College

Join Beth McMurtrie and Beckie Supiano, Chronicle senior writers and authors of our free Teaching newsletter, for a four-part monthly series of roundtable discussions that will tackle the topics that concern you most — and answer your questions. Plus, the conversation will continue in the Teaching newsletter.
UPCOMING: April 29 at 2 p.m., ET.
Our roundtable series has covered a lot of ground: the changing student/professor dynamic, fostering student engagement, and rethinking assessment. But we know there’s so much more on professors’ minds as you continue to navigate pandemic teaching. So this time, we’re turning things over to you, our audience. What’s keeping you up at night, when it comes to teaching and learning? What would you like to hear our panelists’ weigh in on? Send in your questions, we’re building our whole fourth session around them. Register here.
