203. Studio23 Day 2. Seanna Takacs (Nov. 2, 2023)
Presenter: Seanna Takacs
The call to transform teaching and learning is no small feat. It asks you not only to reconsider the way you deliver content but also to reframe culture, knowledge, and accessibility. It asks you to dwell in uncertainty and to take risks. In the spirit Arley Cruthers McNeney, who died suddenly in March 2023, this talk will explore the profound implications of gift-giving in teaching and learning. How can you make community a verb? What is your moral obligation in teaching and learning in this community? Please join us in this call to transformation, courage, and joy.
This session was live streamed.
