Session II   2:30-3:45 PM

*Session II-A: Helping Students Write Better*

Presenter: Candis Bond
AH E354

Clear, articulate prose is fundamental to success in many disciplines, yet faculty who do not teach composition are often uncomfortable helping students with their writing.  Research has taught us much about how students write and how we can best help them improve. This session will focus on effective approaches to preparing writing assignments and providing students feedback.  Using these approaches you may not only promote student learning and but also help keep your sanity as you work through that stack of papers in front of you.

*Session II-B: Teaching and Talking about Race with Students *

Presenter:  Melissa Powell-Williams
AH E355

Students and faculty have identities beyond the titles and roles of student and faculty. Whether it is a chemistry class or a class on women and gender, student and faculty cultural identities play a role in the learning environment in enriching ways. The university setting serves as a social microcosm for the greater US and global contexts. Our students and faculty are often impacted by current events, and those experiences are relevant in all learning environments. In this session titled, Teaching and Talking about Race with Students, faculty participants will learn strategies for facilitating discussions about race, one example of diversity, in the classroom. Participants will also gain an understanding of their specific functions and roles in facilitating these conversations. Using race as one example of diversity, the skills gained in this session will be translatable to many other dialogues across difference.
