"Pursuit of Truth/(Teacher + Subject + Student) x LOVE = Engagement, Inspiration"

As the premise of this presentation, I offer this equation of teaching in the Dominican University context of Caritas and Veritas. The LOVE variable is the teacher’s willingness and desire to understand how his/her students learn and to consider the variables that impact learning and learners in their instruction and within the elements of their courses. This presentation explores various factors that impact how students learn, and challenges participants to the “hospitality of teaching” (Parker Palmer).
