This week's topic is "An alternative approach to teaching college level courses: A focus on promoting critical thinking and conceptual understanding" led by Kathy Villalon.

She received her teaching credential and Master’s degree in Education from Whittier College where she studied Latin@s in Higher Education and forms of assimilation, acculturation, and resistance. Villalón is originally from Pico Rivera, California. She spent her younger years living between Tijuana and Los Angeles. Her experiences as a borderlands native have shaped her research interests around immigration, English Language Learner policy, youth and parent activism, and Latin@ college graduation attainment.
