Perspective and Politics: An Exploration of Social Justice, Equity, and Diversity
Location: A214
Facilitators: Amy Amundsen and Tracy Hernandez

The goal of this community is to provide students with a deeper understanding and integration of each discipline and thoughtful interaction with their peers and instructors. We will be creating a space for students to learn content for both courses in a more meaningful way, including heavy stress on writing across the curriculum and social and civil engagement. Having both professors in the classroom together will provide a diversity of teaching styles, perspectives, content, and an appreciation for the cross-pollination of the content.

Beating RateMyProfessor.com
Location: G401
Facilitator: Dr. Matthew Dempsey

Students will drive across the county to take professors that have high rankings on www.ratemyprofessors.com. Why are my rankings not high as I want and what can I do about it? This session will be aimed at presenting some best practices for improving your rankings and how you can begin to market your courses for higher enrollments and rankings. This session will allow for both independent work and facilitate discussion on the topic of how you can beat RateMyProfessors.com.

Racism, Prejudice, and Implicit Bias
Location: A345

Dual Credit Classroom Management
Location: C244
Facilitator: Jennifer Hudson-Allen

Teaching a dual credit / ECHS course requires a unique set of skills. Beyond the traditional role of facilitating learning, instructors must also be able to successfully coordinate with both high-school and college staff to support the needs of a younger student demographic. In this session, participants will discuss topics such as classroom management strategies, communication, policy expectations, and meeting the educational and emotional needs of dual credit / ECHS students.
