The College of Social Sciences and Humanities Pedagogy-in-Progress series convenes faculty across the college for informal, energizing conversations about teaching challenges and opportunities. Topics have included facilitating Difficult Classroom Discussions, Designing Inclusive Teaching and Learning Environments, Proposing and Designing Courses for NUpath, and Incorporating Experiential Learning into Your Classroom.
Each year, the college hosts four sessions, two of which explicitly focus on issues of diversity and inclusion. All sessions are held in 310 Renaissance Park from noon—1:00pm, and lunch is provided. All members of the CSSH teaching community are welcome to attend.
Here are the sessions for 2018-2019:
