Each spring, the CTLR organizes a learning institute for the Middlebury Faculty and Staff for community sharing and development.
2021 Learning Institute
Professor Blum is the author of I Love Learning, I Hate School: An Anthropology of College (2016) and a co-editor of Ungrading: Why Rating Students Undermines Learning (and What to do Instead) (2020).
A professor of anthropology, Blum’s research focuses on the question—what does the world look and feel like to people, and what are the factors that shaped those views?
2021 Learning Institute: Educational Inequities and the Pandemic
Following a keynote on Thursday, Blum will lead a workshop for faculty and staff on ungrading. Additional sessions on educational equality will be on Friday.
Ungrading and Related Practices for Equity in and Beyond a Pandemic
