This GRID seminar asks: what are the pressing and invisible inequities facing the Dartmouth community and the communities around us, and how can we shape our teaching and learning to prepare our students to address them? How can we embrace the whole of students' intellect and experience, actively transform knowledge rather than simply consume it, and unlock the genuinely transformative potential of teaching? What kinds of new research methods and questions does this kind of learning and teaching facilitate?
