Guest Lectures & Collaborative Programs

In addition to the keynote lecture at our annual Excellence in Teaching Day, the CTE also seeks out opportunities to bring nationally-recognized experts to campus at other times in the year to engage faculty in conversations about the latest research on teaching and pedagogy. These lectures are open to the entire university community, unless otherwise noted.

We also occasionally host programs that are offered in collaboration with other BC organizations.

Fostering Belonging for LGBTQ+ Students in the Classroom: A Panel of BC Students & Faculty

Wednesday, February 22, 3:30-5:00 pm, Stokes S195

Please note: this panel discussion is intended for a faculty audience. Faculty play a significant role in the campus experiences and learning of LGBTQ+ students by facilitating proactively welcoming course climates, inviting LGBTQ+ students into their fields of study, and “queering the curriculum.” A collaboration with the GLBTQ+ Leadership Council, this panel will feature students and faculty talking about their experiences and practices in the classroom. Join us to hear from Wells Arkins (‘23), Nathan Schirtzinger (‘24), Ali Erol (Communication), and Christy Pottroff (English), reflect on your own pedagogical practices, and exchange ideas and questions with other BC instructors. Coffee and dessert will be provided.
