The University of Dayton Learning and Teaching Forum is an annual conference featuring faculty and staff workshops, presentations, and conversations about education theory and practice at UD.  One of the foundational commitments of the University’s vision of the University for the Common Good is to “develop the agility needed to adopt new models of teaching and learning that engage students and prepare them for servant-leadership roles and lifelong career success.” The purpose of the Learning and Teaching Forum is to bring UD faculty and staff together for a day of focused, intentional dialogue, sharing, and reflection about learning as a central part of the University’s mission and vision.

2019 Learning and Teaching Forum: Power and Vulnerability

2019 Learning and Teaching Forum Program (PDF)

The 2019 University of Dayton Learning and Teaching Forum will explore power and vulnerability in various forms and from various perspectives. We invite proposals from faculty and staff on scholarship and/or research on learning and teaching, as well as more informal presentations and demonstrations related to education, power, and vulnerability. The day-long Forum will include three blocks of concurrent sessions (all 50 minutes), as well as two featured speakers and a closing panel discussion. This year the invited speakers will be:

Daria Graham, Ph.D., Associate Dean of Students and Executive Director of Multicultural Affairs

Beth Harrison, Director, Office of Learning Resources (OLR) and Associate Director, Ryan C. Harris Learning Teaching Center (LTC)

Natalie Hudson, Associate Professor; Interim Chair; Director of Human Rights Studies Program

Shelley Inglis, Executive Director, Human Rights Center, Research Professor, Human Rights & Law

Joel Pruce, Assistant Professor, Human Rights Studies

The Forum organizers are interested in proposals that explore topics including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Our Catholic and Marianist identity and its influence on an education at UD  
  • The relationships between power/vulnerability and inclusivity and community
  • Power and vulnerability in the classroom - methods to acknowledge power differences, and to facilitate learning in a way that inclusively and effectively navigates that power differential
  • Power and vulnerability in community engagement as part of the curriculum - navigating community/university power differences while educating justice-minded students
Faculty and staff are invited to submit a proposal here>>. The deadline to submit a proposal is December 16, 2018.  For more information on the event, please contact kvelasquez1@udayton.edu.
