Faculty Workshop on Teaching and Learning About Diversity
Baruch College faculty are invited to join a two-and-a-half day workshop to consider how we as instructors can enhance teaching and learning about diversity. The workshop is scheduled for June 8 and 9 (10 am - 3 pm) with a brief follow up meeting in August to share project results. Professor Sonia Jarvis (SPA), whose research and teaching focus on race, politics, and the media, will serve as the facilitator. Participating Baruch faculty members will receive a small stipend.
The workshop is designed to help faculty members make the discussion of diversity a more integral part of their classes, or, if diversity does not seem to fit naturally within the class structure, to help them consider how to create a safe environment and handle discussions that veer towards topics that can cause tension and real discomfort.
Just a few more seats are available! If you interested in taking part in the workshop, RSVP to Jody Clark Vaisman at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to your joining us in June.
