CLC Pedagogy Talks

CLC Pedagogy Talks aim to cover a diverse range of topics and presenters. To foster discussion and community we encourage attending via Zoom at the scheduled time as much as possible, but each session will be recorded for those who cannot attend. All workshops are held online and are limited to University of Chicago faculty and staff unless otherwise noted.  Contact Nick Swinehart at for Zoom info.
