Diversity in the Classroom, March 24 (BC), March 26 (PC)
This interactive discussion will examine the politics of identity and the dynamics of power and privilege to help participants build greater self-awareness. The workshop will help participants understand their own social location in order to facilitate conversations across differences and create classroom policies, assignments and activities that display greater multicultural awareness, cultural sensitivity and social equity.
Brown bag sessions will be held from 12:00-1:00 on both the Portland (Blewett 108) and Biddeford (3rd Floor Commons) campuses at the dates listed below. Online discussions will open on Sunday and close on Saturday the same week as the Face-to-Face sessions. Links to the online discussions will be sent the Friday before they open.
