Talking About Teaching

12:00 PM  - 1:00 PM
Friday Nov 8, 2013
Jan Serie Center for Scholarship and Teaching (Room 338), DeWitt Wallace Library

Jane Rhodes, Dean for the Study of Race and Ethnicity, American Studies and Daniel Williams, Sociology will present  “Teaching about Identities and Differences."  After this academic year, only courses certified under the new United States Identities and Differences (USID) provisions will contribute to the USID General Education Requirement (which will replace the US Multiculturalism requirement). Two faculty members who incorporate identities and differences into their pedagogy and scholarship will lead a discussion about their approaches to teaching about identities and differences and how these approaches are similar to and distinct from teaching about multiculturalism. What techniques and activities are useful for getting students to see the power dynamics that influence identities and differences? What, if anything, is different about a course focused on identities and differences than one that is about multiculturalism?  All faculty welcome.  Lunch will be provided.
