Reimagining Jesuit Education @ USF

Submit a proposalCTE and ETS are collaborating to support and celebrate teaching at USF through a  joint “3D Symposium” on February 22-23, 2023, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The symposium will gather our teaching community and include some student voices to reflect upon our shared experiences over the past three years and discern what we’ve learned and how we and our students have changed. Let’s dream together about our shared future as we work to design the next chapter of teaching and learning at USF.

The aims of the 3D Symposium are to foster dialogue across areas and roles, build and strengthen our community, and revitalize our passion for teaching and learning. It will provide space to share key learnings from 2.5 years of remote, hybrid, hyflex and online teaching; we hope to glean ideas, insights, and recommendations that will help guide the implementation of our Strategic Plan, particularly our first goal to “Reimagine Jesuit Education.”

The proposal process is fairly simple; we ask for a provisional title and very short description of your idea. We welcome proposals on all topics and questions that touch on teaching and learning at USF, including but not limited to the following:
  • Supporting Mental Health and Fostering Well-Being: Faculty and Students
  • Navigating the Post-Pandemic Terrain: Lost Learning and the “New Normal”
  • Humanizing Teaching: Centering Anti-Racism, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (ADEI) in the Classroom
  • Decolonizing Systemic Practices in Higher Education and Academic Institutions
  • Designing Culturally Responsive Teaching Practices
  • Reframing Disability & Creating a Truly Accessible University
  • Expanding and Deepening Our Global Presence, Reach, and Teaching
