Books & Coffee Reading Group
Book: Getting Culture: Incorporating Diversity Across the Curriculum
Thursdays 2 - 3:30, Fleck 306 - Sept 19, Oct 17, Nov 7, Dec 5
The book opens with a conceptual framework, covering such issues as distinguishing teaching to a diverse audience from teaching about diversity and contrasting the incorporation of culture across the curriculum with tokenistic approaches. Subsequent chapters identify classroom practices that can optimize students’ learning, especially those from culturally diverse backgrounds; describe feminist principles of education that promote learning for all students; and address principles of effective on-line instruction for diverse populations.
We will meet four times across the semester on Thursday afternoons from 2- 3:30 pm in Fleck 306. And, yep, we will always have coffee. For more information and to sign up, visit the Books & Coffee page.

Peer-to-Peer Teaching Exchange Program
Work with a colleague to observe one another's teaching, exchange feedback on assignment and course design, or peer review scholarship of teaching and learning projects. The Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Teaching Exchange Program was created to give St. Edward's instructors the opportunity to learn about teaching from one another and to build mutually supportive relationships with colleagues -- both within and between the university's schools. The program is open to all St. Edward's faculty -- both full-time and adjunct.
Fri, Sept 13, 2-3, Fleck 207 - Kickoff Meeting
Fri, Dec 6, 2-3, Fleck 207 - Concluding Meeting
