Ready for 1st Day of Class? Faculty Share Tips and Strategies

When: Monday, March 01, 2021 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM

How will you invite students into the "community" of your course? What types of habits do you want to introduce and reinforce throughout the first few weeks?

Please join us for a conversation about ways to approach a first class session or first weekly module. Together we'll problem solve in response to some common questions and scenarios we all face in the first days of a new semester. Please come ready to exchange ideas, strategies, and activities. We hope you'll leave this session with a first-day plan that can lay the groundwork for a successful semester for you and your students. Facilitated by Jessica Boehman (Humanities) and Dominique Zino (English). All disciplines welcome!

United Wounds of America: The N-Word...Can I Say It?

Where: Online (Zoom)

Many scholars would estimate that in the English language there are more than a million words. In that vast collection of terms, the N-word holds a distinctive position. In one instance, it is an extreme slur that has plagued generations of black for centuries. While at the same, it has become a widespread term of blandishment used by the descendants of the very people who once had to live under its suppressive influence. Its increased popularity has also led to another outcome, an escalation in use by non-black people. Join us for a powerful and informative discussion about this enigmatic word.

In the workshops, instructors from The Moth introduce the concepts of Moth Storytelling, help participants (LGBTQIA) find the stories they would like to tell, and work with them to refine and practice their stories. The participants will use these Moth strategies within instructor-facilitated small groups, which will also develop tools to provide peer feedback and help one another craft their stories. After the workshop, participants will have the opportunity (if they choose) to share their stories in a virtual College SLAM (3rd day), produced by The Moth, which will be open to the wider college community. All sessions will be held on Zoom. Up to 10 student participants may participate, and the opportunity is open to the entire student community.
