How are Teach-Outs unique?

Teach-Outs combine the best of just-in-time learning experiences and community events . They were created to bring together a community of experts from the University of Michigan and the general public to explore, learn and discuss pressing issues on the national and international stage.

A Teach-Out is:

  • an event – it takes place over a fixed, short period of time
  • an opportunity – it is open for free participation to everyone around the world
  • a community – it will be joined by a large number of diverse individuals
  • a conversation – an opportunity to give and take ideas and information from people

Teach-Outs are short learning experiences, each focused on a specific current issue. They are open to the world and are designed to bring together individuals with wide-ranging perspectives in respectful and deep conversation.
