Faculty Lunches on Learning

The Derek Bok Center hosts an annual series of faculty lunch conversations on aspects of learning. Each lunch is moderated by one or more faculty colleagues, who share their experiences in the classroom and lead a broad discussion of the lessons learned and opportunities for adaptation. Follow-up resources as well as consultation services are available through the Derek Bok Center for Teaching and Learning.

During Spring 2017, learning lunches will be held at the Bok Center for Teaching and Learning on the following dates: March 9th, March 23rd and April 28th. Each lunch focuses on learning in either the arts and humanities, social sciences, or science and engineering, and features faculty presenters from related disciplines.
