Our Approach

Teaching for Social Justice

Deep teaching and learning is central to the work of the Teaching + Learning Commons. Deep teaching and learning requires an understanding of the complexities of the teaching and learning process and unique experiences, beliefs, and values educators bring to the learning environment.

The Commons' Engaged Teaching Hub works with educators to reflect on their teaching in the spirit of scholarly inquiry and what it means to teach the whole student. This involves reflecting on: (a) who they are as educators, (b) educators’ beliefs about student learning and their experiences teaching today’s students, (c) educators’ pedagogical choices, (d) and the content and context in which educators teach.

Our work is informed by Adams' & Love's (2009) faculty development framework.
