Teaching in Troubled Times

The Teaching in Troubled Times series provides space for critically-needed conversation about teaching and learning in our current social/political context.


These timely, interactive dialogues feature dynamic campus panelists and engage the Berkeley community in exploring how equity and justice challenges – locally, regionally and nationally – are impacting our students, instructors, classrooms, and campus. All events feature plenty of time for open, facilitated discussion. 

Launched in 2017-18, the Teaching in Troubled Times series is presented by the Division of Equity & inclusion, the Center for Teaching and Learning, the American Cultures Center, and the Academic Innovation Studio. 

All events are wheelchair accessible. To request captioning,  ASL interpretation or other accommodations, please contact Disability Access and Compliance at https://dac.berkeley.edu/overview  or email Amy Scharf at ascharf@berkeley.edu. Please refrain from wearing scented products, so that people with chemical sensitivities can join us.
