ACTL

Greetings from the Center for Teaching & Learning.

If you are interested in exploring a SoTL project but weren't able to join us last Friday please let me know. I'd be glad to share resources or simply brainstorm ideas with you.

In this shortened week ACTL and the Diversity Initiatives Committee will be hosting a session titled Diversity in the Classroom this

Wednesday
3:45
Wilson Center  

According to Paul Croll (Sociology, Diversity Initiatives Committee),

In this session designed for faculty at Augustana, we will be discussing diversity in the classroom.  As a community we are striving for a more diverse student body.  The goal of this session is to develop our own (faculty) awareness of diversity issues/perspectives within our classes.  We want to discuss strategies and provide practical tips that we all can use to work with a more diverse classroom, whether that be a class in Chemistry, or Literature, or Music, or.... We ask that each of you bring a textbook or text that you use in one of your courses.  We will use these texts during one of the activities for the session.  Hope to see you there!

Until then, have a productive week!
