Part I: Subtle Acts of Exclusion: How to Understand, Identify, & Stop Microaggressions Book Study

Wednesday, September 15, 2021 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm

Although unintentional, we have all committed subtle acts of exclusion (SAE, a.k.a. microaggressions) which can alienate our colleagues, students, and friends. These actions and phrases often go unaddressed and are harmful. Join us in learning how to spot and address stereotypes, objectification, and other forms of microaggressions that separate instead of uniting.

Maintaining Student Engagement Throughout the Whole Semester

Thursday, September 9, 2021 - 2:00pm to 3:30pm
Online

It's one thing to "entertain" students for a single class meeting, but it's quite another to engage them from week 1 to week 15. To be successful in a course, students need to be able to persist throughout an entire semester. Although it's tempting to think of persistence and resilience as student characteristics, the reality is that instructor choices play a huge role in whether students will be able to sustain their engagement for long periods of time. In this workshop, we'll discuss how we can design our courses in ways that prompt and support sustained student engagement.
