Join Christin DePouw (Associate Professor, Education & 2021-22 Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Consultant) on Nov. 18, from 1-2 p.m. for a presentation and guided conversation, where we will discuss the role of “self-excavations” (Sealey-Ruiz, 2021) and reflective practice in our teaching. We will consider identities as both personal and group-oriented, imposed and/or chosen, visible and internal. We will also discuss the specific nature of academic identities and how these relate to our understandings of authority, knowledge production and validity, emotion, and embodied experience. We will conclude by connecting these conversations to our dispositions and behaviors as educators.
Join CATL staff on Nov. 15, 3-4 p.m. for a workshop about the WISE feedback technique for providing constructive, encouraging feedback and how it can be applied to your class, regardless of size. Participants will engage with scenarios to practice applying WISE principles.
