Each month, we will engage with an article on student (dis)engagement in higher education and adaptive strategies. All Concordia teaching staff (including teaching assistants) and other staff by special request — regardless of whether you had time to read the full article. We’ll start with small group discussions each session and then collectively develop a practical knowledge base.

Subtopics may include whole-person education, relational learning, flexible pedagogy, or student participation.
