January 23, 2019: Difficult Dialogues

Wed, Jan 23
10 am-noon, EMU Lease Crutcher Lewis Room

How do we create course learning communities that are capable of seriously addressing challenging issues together—including race, gender, privilege, and culture? In Advanced Strategies for Discussion Leaders: Difficult Dialogues, TEP will share strategies for developing respect and mutuality in the classroom; we’ll also consider structures that enable students to better discuss sensitive course material. And we’ll actually practice negotiating heated or potentially painful or offensive moments in the classroom.

January 24, 2019: Science Teaching Journal Club - Week 3

Thurs., Jan. 24
9 a.m., 217 LISB (Lewis Integrative Sciences Building)

This winter in Journal Club we will read a book: Teaching Undergraduate Science: A Guide to Overcoming Obstacles to Student Learning, by Linda C. Hodges. In each chapter of this very practical and accessible book the author draws on the scholarship of teaching and learning to present strategies for helping students learn in a different situation: in class, from texts, from problems, from tests, etc. We look forward to exploring these topics with you, so please join us!
