This month we'll be hearing from Alejandro Luy (CHERS) and Audrey Geffen (Life Sciences).

Alejandro will speak about building a sense of belonging in a competitive environment. Alejandro has been researching how sense of belonging is cultivated across various sectors including the Military, Private, Non-Profit and Sports sectors and how this relates to factors such as excellence, success, failure and inclusivity.

Audrey will walk you through the Biodiversity Challenge, a major shift in the teaching about the diversity of life to first year Life Sciences undergraduates. The Challenge pulled the students, and the learning, out of the classroom and into the real world to make a more active, visceral, and hopefully longer-lasting experience.
