2017-18 THEME: Navigating Changing Environments

Last year, the Teaching and Creativity Center’s theme was Cultivating a Growth Mindset, during which we learned about the brain’s remarkable capacities for growth and we reflected upon how we might apply such insights to our own teaching and working with students.  At the heart of growth mindset theory is a recognition of change.

This year, the TCC will pick up on the topic of change, and explore the sometimes rocky, frequently jolting terrain of change in higher education. Our theme is intentionally broad, so that we can explore a wide range of topics: Navigating Changing Environments.
