We had a wonderful Curriculum Colloquium February 9, focused on Strengthening the Learning Environment at UPSOM. About 120 faculty, students, and staff attended in-person or online. Dr. Shekhar set the tone with a strong statement about the importance of a safe learning environment, and how committed UPSOM is to this.
Participants worked through three core skills sessions to learn how to best co-create learning environments with students, how to respond to microaggressions, and how to increase civility on work/learning teams. Participants enjoyed a mindfulness activity and a mini-concert by the PalPITTations acapella singing group.
Thanks to all the staff who worked hard to support this event, and to everyone who participated.
