Come to discuss your plans for the first day and first month of class. Supported by the facilitators, participants will explore ways to create an inclusive and critical class environment that encourages students to be courageous in their engagement with one another and course material. We will reflect on our personal teaching goals and boundaries and consider establishing community participation norms and dynamics, giving and receiving student feedback, syllabus statements, and more. We all have experiences and ideas about these topics and this session will afford chances to share success strategies with one another as well as gain new insights on various topics.
If you unable to attend on this date but are available on Thursday, September 1st, 10am - 12pm, please email Kristen Luschen at email@example.com. A second session will be offered with interest from ten or more participants.
This workshop will be facilitated by Becky Wai-Ling Packard and Kristen Luschen.
