Thursday, March 11 at 12:30 PM   The Sacred Syllabi: Applying an Equity Lens to Our Contractual Obligation to Students (co-sponsored by the Social Justice Series)

In this interactive and hands-on virtual workshop, professors Cocchiola, Taylor, and McGary will provide a space to assess our assumptions, values, attitudes, and beliefs that shape our teaching.  It's an opportunity to discern how our syllabus welcomes students, affirms them, demystifies college, our expectations, and the course requirements as well as challenging policies and practices that may disadvantage historically marginalized students.  Begin the journey as we think about the experiences of each and every student and our responsibility to provide a contract that is both inclusive and equitable.

Friday, March 26th at 10:00 – 11:00 AM  Your Story of Resilience: A facilitated writing workshop    As a way to continue this fall’s Spirit of Teaching program, this workshop will allow faculty to identify a personal time of resilience and explore it through lightly facilitated writing prompts and exercises. Participants don’t have to have attended previous sessions to attend the workshop, however all are encouraged to share their own stories of resilience. Learning to trust one’s own writing voice is an ongoing process with which to both strengthen personal writing practice and inform the teaching of it to our students. Hosted by Cindy Eastman, Adjunct Professor of English.
