Pedagogy, Professionalization, and Diversity: A Graduate Student Workshop 

November 27, 5:00-7:30 in the Liberman Center (DUC 300)

Erika Rodríguez, Natalia Guzmán, Grace Ward, and Fran Dennstedt (clockwise from top right to bottom left) offer strategies for promoting racial and gender equity in academia. November 2018.

How do you prepare to address issues of gender, race, class, and politics in a classroom that is already politicized (racialized, gendered, classed)? How does teaching go beyond the classroom? This workshop focuses on how to engage issues of gender, race, ability, citizenship, class and sexuality ethically as educators. Our discussion will account for the different challenges we face in teaching diversity issues within classroom communities that vary in their diversity, as well as the dynamics of managing these issues as gender minorities or women with intersectional identities. Open to all graduate and professional students.

Attend this session to:

  • Develop strategies to promote academic integrity and ethics in research and pedagogy in your classroom and throughout your department
  • Learn to structure a syllabus that responds to cultural issues
  • Discuss strategies to foster civility and manage conflict/crisis moments in and out of the classroom

We ask that participants come prepared to draw on their own experiences in the classroom. For access to a short (16-17 page) reading that will serve as a jumping off-point for our discussion, RSVP at gemwgs@wustl.edu or at the facebook event page.

Participating in this event will count toward the Graduate Leadership Credential.
