Welcome back to a new academic year!
We hope this issue of The CTRL Beat provides our American University community (and beyond!) inspirational knowledge and resources to begin a new year of teaching, learning, and scholarship.
Below is a letter from our Editors, expressing our thanks to contributors and outlining the themes of the issue. Links for this issue’s articles follow.
This issue of The CTRL Beat features articles on crucial teaching, learning, and research topics including space and positionality for Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander faculty and students, anti-racist environments in academia and their impact on students and instructors, as well as advice from the 2023 Teaching Award recipients. Classroom technology and student-centered teaching approaches are also discussed through pieces addressing artificial intelligence in the classroom, engaging with student insights on current events, and the accessibility and benefits of open-source research software.
We, the editors, have immense pride in the perspectives our authors provide. As you review these new articles and check out past issues in our archive, we know you will gain insights that will motivate and interest you.
