Join us for an interactive online session that is open to all UVA instructors.
In this interactive performance, you'll hear stories from Gene, Vanessa, and Claire about their experiences with belonging and belonging uncertainty in their education. Consider how small changes and psychosocial interventions during lectures can allow students to feel they belong in your classroom, at UVA, and in your field of research—and learn why belonging matters in the first place.
Zoom links will be provided once you register. For questions about registration, contact Claire Reeger (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The facilitator for this session is Cortney McEniry, UVA Acts Artistic Director and Program Manager. If you need any accommodations to participate in this event, you can indicate this in your registration form or contact Cortney directly (email@example.com). Please let us know about any accommodations at least one week prior to the event.
