The CTL's first-ever Came to Listen, a nod to The Moth, took place on April 22, 2022. This storytelling event was designed to foster and bolster teaching and learning amongst instructors. It was a successful afternoon of coming together as a community, connecting, and learning. Andrew Dell'Antonio, Courtney Manning, Shavonne Coleman, and Gesel Mason intrepidly shared anecdotes useful for the development of teaching and learning and the cultivation of humanistic instructional practice. During this hour together, attendees were invited to engage in one of humanity's oldest and most effective tools for learning-- storytelling. We hope you will be drawn to the light and join us next semester as we continue to amplify real stories of teaching and learning at Came To Listen.

"The Moth was founded by the novelist George Dawes Green, who wanted to recreate in New York the feeling of sultry summer evenings in his native Georgia, when moths were attracted to the light on the porch where he and his friends would gather to spin spellbinding tales." Learn more.
