About

This blog acts as a forum for faculty, students, and staff to reflect on the issues, theories, and experiences of teaching and of learning. Our intention is to create a shared space for imagining, contesting, and proposing ideas that are both emergent as well as those more fully formed. Hosted by the Curriculum + Learning Group within the Provost's Office, this blog is a space where everyone in our community can engage in open-minded dialogue related to experience and education. If you have ideas for posts or you'd like to be considered as a guest contributor, please contact us at
