Time: 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Please join us for an interactive, hands-on teaching workshop on achieving learning objectives with multilingual students. “[L]anguage is one of those overlooked issues that goes unrecognized in the diversity canon as it actively and insidiously promotes and enhances inequality on campus,” remark Clements and Petray (2021). Grading, for instance, is one of those places where biases against different accents, local varieties, and world Englishes intersect with educational objectives. Built on emerging scholarship at the intersection of social justice and effective writing pedagogy, this workshop will help colleagues examine if and when that intersection undermines student learning. Bring a class activity, assignment, or course syllabus that you can review and discuss with fellow educators. This workshop is led by:
- Shyam Sharma, Associate Professor, Program in Writing & Rhetoric, Stony Brook University
- Laura Lisbeth, Lecturer, Program in Writing & Rhetoric, Stony Brook University
- Patricia Medved, Lecturer, Program in Writing & Rhetoric, Stony Brook University
- Nela Navarro, Assistant Teaching Professor, Department of English-Writing Program, Rutgers University
Open to all teaching instructors.
Please register for the event via Zoom.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
If you have a disability and are requesting accommodations in order to fully participate in this event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 631-632-7100.
