Who: anyone interested (faculty, grad or undergrad students, postdocs etc)

How: join our mailing list (low traffic) here to get reminders, online links etc (you will need to be on campus or using McGill's VPN -- or just ask me and I will add you)

Why: To educate ourselves about these issues and find ways to take action to be more supportive of fellow colleagues, students etc in the department.

Where and when: Wednesdays 2:30pm-3:30pm in BURN 708 and online, starting Sept 21

Pedagogy discussion group

Who: anyone interested (faculty, grad or undergrad students, postdocs etc)

How: join our mailing list (low traffic) here to get reminders, online links etc (you will need to be on campus or using McGill's VPN -- or just ask me and I will add you)
