From March 18-22, 2018, Penn Faculty will convene a Teach-In on “the production, dissemination, and use of knowledge.” Events will be free and open to the public at locations all around campus. This is Penn’s first Teach-In since March 1969.
Events will range from interactive lab activities to lectures about data, fake news, health and science to bioethics film festivals.

We are also opening our borders to invite the civic community, schools, local organizations, and policy makers, both in Philadelphia and in our capitals, into our campus to be a part of this dialog.
