A Message From the Founding Director – March

Forget the Ides of March and the month’s extreme weather, this March is all about women. March 8th is International Women’s Day! #BalanceforBetter

The Teaching for Learning Center joins Mizzou’s celebration of Women’s History and wants to thank our colleagues for the impact they achieve through Mizzou’s many women’s organizations. Special note: On March 7, our Women’s and Gender Studies department is hosting intersectionality expert, author and award-winning blogger, Feminista Jones.

The Teaching for Learning Center is working on several exciting endeavors for the upcoming months. We have been hosting events to hear from you and your input is helping to inform our actions for the design and build of Mizzou’s new center. Please follow our website, Twitter and LinkedIn accounts as we unveil details. Check out the attached poster with events for you and check out highlights below. RSVP and bring colleagues because social learning contributes to deeper learning – plus, it’s more fun.
