Tuesday, May 10, 2022, 10:30am to 12:00pm


125 Mt. Auburn Street, 3rd floor

Portrait of David GooblarAmerican higher education has a long way to go before it achieves true equity for its students. But when universities target gaps in graduation rates and other signs of unequal opportunity, they rarely focus on how students are being taught.

Join the Bok Center and our special guest David Gooblar, Assistant Professor of English & Gender, Women’s and Sexuality Studies at the University of Iowa and author of The Missing Course: Everything They Never Taught You About College Teaching (Harvard, 2019), for an interactive session in which we’ll think about how our unexamined pedagogical practices might be leading to unequal outcomes, and look at what the research has to say about which teaching approaches might help every student succeed.

Take a box lunch at the end of the event to continue the discussion!
