Fall Forum on Teaching and Learning

​​​ Each year the Fall Forum on Teaching and Learning brings together faculty from across DePaul's colleges and schools to connect with one another and share strategies for teaching and learning. The Fall Forum kicks off the academic year with an event focused on pedagogy, complementing the annual Teaching and Learning Conference in the spring.

This year’s forum followed an “Unconference” format, which gave participants a central role in shaping the day’s events and outcomes.
