"Our Experiences in Teaching about Organized Racism"

February 8, 2012 - 12:00pm - 1:30pm
Dr. Kathleen Blee (Professor of Sociology and Associate Dean for Graduate Studies and Research) and Kelsy Burke (PhD Candidate, Sociology)


Teaching about race raises difficult questions for instructors as they consider how students will react.  How can faculty respond to students who are hesitant to participate or who blurt a response perceived as volatile?  These challenges prompted Blee and Burke to collaborate on a recent publication, Teaching Race in the 21st Century.  They stress that their research is useful in any discipline that addresses the topic of racism. 

Making Time for Diversity

A series of 90 minute lunchtime discussions sponsored by CIDDE (Center for Instructional Developemnt and Distance Educatio) by faculty, for faculty, addressing barriers to diversity and strategies for inclusive teaching.
