OTL Conference Room (Anderson Academic Commons 345)
Heart of Higher Education Conversations (formerly known as Soul and Role) are hosted by the Office of Teaching and Learning and Morgridge College of Education professor Paul Michalec. The meetings are open to all faculty (of any rank) and staff (of any title). The Heart of Higher Education is an opportunity to gather as a DU community to share the challenges and opportunities of transcending the institutional, professional, and personal choices that tend to separate core identity/integrity from day to day actions. The Heart of Higher Education Conversations create a space where staff and faculty can explore ways of re-connecting calling with professional responsibilities. Our time together is bounded by norms designed to create an open invitation to share while respecting individual choices to not share at a particular time.
Prior to each meeting an agenda and short reflective reading will be sent out. We hope that you will read the poem as well as the prompts before the meeting and if possible to begin formulating understandings to the poem or prompts. This is an opportunity not an obligation, which means you are welcome to attend whether you read the poem or not. Please feel free to bring your lunch.
