Teaching Strides

feet walking surrounded by Teaching Strides Exercise & Discussion

Join us this Fall for a new professional development opportunity that combines physical activity with meaningful conversation! Each Tuesday, meet at the Ram Statue in front of Old Library at 11:30 am to join us for a discussion on a teaching related topic or theme as we walk around campus.

Walks will be no more than an hour, but participants are free to leave at any time.

Each week will have a starting topic, but the conversation will be directed by the group.  Participants are always welcome to bring a teaching challenge, question, or issue to the group even if it is not related to the daily topic.

Registration is not required but is recommended so you can be contacted about a weather cancellation.  

Not interested in walking, but still want to talk about the week’s teaching topic? Join us on Wednesday at 11:30am on Zoom for 30 minutes of conversation around each week’s topic.
