Be Part of the Teaching, Gender, and Sexuality Learning Community
All year, the CFT continues its attention to issues of teaching, difference, and power by organizing a learning community on Teaching, Gender, and Sexuality. The hope for the group is to have a dynamic discussion of, both the many issues that arise when teaching a student body of varied gendered and sexual identities, and how gendered and sexual subjects may be taught effectively. This learning community will involve informal discussions of pedagogical readings, teaching challenges, and practical strategies for improving our teaching and learning.
The topics covered will include but are not limited to…
- Creating inclusive, safe, but also brave spaces for learning
- Engaging students of diverse gendered and sexual identities
- Gender and sexuality in student evaluations
- Managing authority in the classroom
- Feminist pedagogy
- Teaching gender and sexuality effectively
The learning community will be open to both faculty and graduate students and will meet five times throughout the academic year at the times below. It will be helpful if participants can attend regularly to form a supportive intellectual community, and to work collaboratively to develop courses, lesson plans, or teaching portfolios.
In the Fall, the group will meet September 25th (12:00-2:00pm), October 23rd (10:00am-12:00pm), and November 20th (12:00-2:00pm) at the Center for Teaching.
