2021-2022 Pilot Dialogue Series

The OFD is introducing a pilot dialogue series on teaching & learning articles, selected chapters, public lectures, or short videos that appear to be gaining a great deal of traffic in key journals or other venues and/or engendering important discussion. We encourage faculty to review the list of suggested articles below and, if interested, to select one to explore with the aim of leading a dialogue open to all faculty on the selected article and topic. The dialogue would examine the key arguments and findings put forth in the article as well as suggest ways to implement them in teaching and scholarly work across disciplines.  

Faculty members interested in leading a Pilot Dialogue are invited to contact for more information.
