In this seminar, researchers from across the university present work they've completed, works in progress, or a bit of both. Presenters seek feedback, multidisciplinary insight, mentorship, and sometimes collaboration on particular projects. IDS hosts these seminars so that researchers focusing on Diversities and Disparities in Learning, who may normally be siloed in their disciplinary spaces, come together around this important issue, and potentially partner for collaborative projects. In a typical seminar, two people present — each has 35 minutes, usually split between a 20-minute presentation and 15 minutes of Q&A.
