Theme: Student Voices Part 2
The Lightning Talks speaker event is a reflection and learning forum where Boston University faculty and invited guests identify areas of challenge and opportunity and share strategies for engaging educational experiences in the in-person environment. The speaker series, co-hosted by Digital Learning & Innovation and The Center for Teaching & Learning, is open to BU faculty, staff, graduate students, and postdoctoral scholars.
Teaching and learning in LfA modalities presented new challenges for faculty and students. Undergraduate students in leadership roles and across different disciplines share their remote and hybrid learning experiences, and discuss challenges, successes, and elements of LfA instruction they most appreciate.
