Teaching from a Feminist Perspective
Wednesday, March 19, 2014, 3:30-4:30 PM
Center for Faculty Excellence, 316 Gannett Center
Co-Sponsored by IC Women's Studies

A RoundTable Discussion Led by Bhavani Arabandi (IC Sociology), Mary Bentley (IC HPPE), Alexandra Rutherford (Psychology & Women's Studies, York University, Toronto), and Dafna Hornike (Cornell University Romance Studies)

In this roundtable participants reflect on what feminist pedagogy means and how feminist principles can be incorporated into teaching in a more deliberate way. What are the challenges of being a feminist teacher? What are the benefits? What can students gain and where does resistance reside? What can we learn from other models? Finally, what struggles and inspiration have we experienced in trying to create critical consciousness in the classroom? We look forward to meeting and learning from colleagues across campus.​

Faculty Show and Share: Using Social Media & Mobile Devices to Create an Online Community for Your Class
Friday, March 21, 2014, 12:10 - 1:00 p.m.
Center for Faculty Excellence, 316 Gannett Center
Anthony Adornato, Assistant Professor, Department of Journalism, will discuss how he is using new technologies to complement the in-class learning experience. Although students are considered "digital natives," many don't yet understand how to use social media to enhance their learning experience. He will outline how Facebook and Twitter, among other platforms, are used to reinforce course topics, concepts, and readings.

Faculty Show and Share is a series put on by the Center for Educational Technology in collaboration with the Center for Faculty Excellence. Each session features a guest faculty member who shows how they use a technology to address a teaching goal. Come hear what worked - or didn't work - in a format that is informal, experimental, and fun. Discussion is encouraged and anyone is welcome regardless of their experience with technology.

We are always looking for faculty to show and share. Please contact Marilyn Dispensa (mdispensa@ithaca.edu or 274-3647) if you are interested.
