Save the date: 2019 Symposium on Teaching and Learning at Lehigh

You are here

Nano/Human Interface Presidential Engineering Research Initiative

The purpose of this annual event is to highlight new, interesting, and effective approaches to teaching and learning at Lehigh. Each year, faculty, staff, student, and community presenters from across disciplines and contexts share good ideas and inspire others. Come share an idea, learn from colleagues, and join us as we celebrate the work of those who have met with success of one kind or another in their teaching and learning.

The Symposium will be held over two days: Wednesday, April 10th and Thursday, April 11th.

In addition to a wide variety of talks by Lehigh faculty, this year's Symposium will feature

  • A screening of the documentary film, Can We Talk? Difficult Conversations with Underrepresented People of Color: Sense of Belonging and Obstacles to STEM Fields, and a conversation with filmmaker Dr. Kendall Moore, professor in the departments of Journalism and Film Media, University of Rhode Island. (Wednesday April 10th, 4:10-6pm, Sinclair Auditorium)
  • An Open House for Faculty and Staff at the Lehigh University Art Galleries, featuring a reception, drop-in workshops, and a preview of the 2019-20 exhibitions. (Thursday April 11th, 4:10-6pm)
