We were ecstatic to have Dr. Annika Konrad come to Saint Mary’s to talk to faculty and staff about access, pedagogy, and interdependence. There was great discussion and many takeaways from the talk and workshop. But if you missed them, you can now see the recordings on our recordings page, or click “read more” to see them here!

Access Services, Integratus, and the Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching will be welcoming Dr. Annika Konrad of Dartmouth College for a virtual talk on March 24 at 12:15pm and a virtual workshop for faculty on March 25 at 2pm. Both events will be on Zoom. The title of her talk will be, “Learning from Stories of Access Fatigue: Building Interdependence into Pedagogical Design”.
