Learning While Teaching: Out of Your Comfort Zone
Our classrooms are increasingly diverse. Culturally sensitive and pedagogically conscientious teachers want to be inclusive of all of the students’ cultural heritage, but it is a daunting task. Some of us might feel inadequate and vulnerable because we know that we are not experts in our own right—not in every topic even within our own fields. Some of us wall ourselves off from students out of fear that we might be found out, at the same time, we project these expectations upon our students, effectively weaponizing them.
Four (4) workshop sessions this Fall semester: Facilitated by Janice Robertson (Visiting Associate Prof., HAD) with Judit Torok (Director, Center for Teaching and Learning)
Option 1: Three Wednesdays from 4-6 & One Wed. from 6-8 pm (beginning Oct. 16)
Option 2: Three Fridays from 1-3 pm & One Friday from 6-8 pm (beginning Sept. 27)
Part-time/Visiting faculty qualify for a stipend if they attend all four workshop sessions.
