“How do we learn from one another through meaningful dialogue that addresses and creates active communities?”
That's the Teaching-Learning Academy’s BIG question for 2016-2017. Faculty, staff, community members, and more than 60 students worked collectively throughout fall quarter to create a shared question that addresses how we can better enhance the teaching and learning environment at Western. TLA participants will spend winter 2017 exploring and gathering data to address this year’s question, and all students, faculty and staff are invited to participate.
The TLA dialogue sessions begin Jan. 11 and 12, and meets every other week for a total of five meetings for the quarter.
There are four group options:
- Wednesdays from noon to 1:20 p.m. (Jan 11, 25; Feb 8, 22; Mar 8)
- Wednesdays from 2 to 3:20 p.m. (Jan 11, 25; Feb 8, 22; Mar 8)
- Thursdays from noon to 1:20 p.m. (Jan 12, 26; Feb 9, 23; Mar 9)
- Thursdays from 2 to 3:20 p.m. (Jan 12, 26; Feb 9, 23; Mar 9)
While the sessions run for approximately 80 minutes, attendees are welcome to stop by based on their availability. All dialogue groups meet in the Learning Commons in Wilson 2 West.
Students can also participate for Library practicum credit. For more information, contact Shevell.Thibou@wwu.edu. Also contact Shevell Thibou to sign up for a TLA dialogue session.
