Talking About Teaching

Jan Serie Center for Scholarship and Teaching (Room 338), DeWitt Wallace Library

Harry Waters, Jr., Theatre and Dance, will present "Hip Hop in Higher Ed: How the MASHUP Changed us all."   Engaging Students in Hip Hop culture and experience, which surrounds and consumes every social and intimate element of their lives, could be an interesting adventure.  It was more than could have been imagined.  Thirty students from across disciplines and ages, we pulled out the desks and chairs, checked in regularly with opening sharings and always closed with a palm to palm breathing moment.  What occurred within their experience of community experts, as well as pushing boundaries in so many areas, was phenomenal and transforming - for all of us.  It gave me as an instructor a chance to trust a new way of teaching and being together in the classroom.  All faculty are welcome.  Lunch will be provided.
