    AT Program: Implicit Bias in the Classroom and What You Can Do About It Elective Workshop

    In this workshop, we’ll explore a dilemma; on the one hand, unconscious biases are a normal, natural result of the workings of the human mind, and so we all have them; on the other hand, these biases (especially given the way they crop up around social dimensions like race, gender, sexuality, and so on) can hamper our ability to teach all of our students equally well. Fortunately, there are strategies that can help us become more self-aware and begin pushing back against our biases. This workshop will focus on concrete things we can do to keep unconscious bias out of our pedagogy.

    Paul Mihailidis Book Talk: "Civic Media Literacies: Re-Imagining Engagement for Intentionality, Impact, and Equity"

    In the midst of a renewed call for media literacy initiatives that respond to the increasing levels of partisanship, tribalism and distrust, this talk argues that media literacy interventions must be re-imagined as intentionally civic. A new set of emerging norms of digital culture further put into question the relevance of long standing approaches to media literacy pedagogy and practice. This presentation puts forward a new set of constructs that position media literacy initiatives to produce and reproduce the sense of being in the world with others toward common good. These constructs—agency, caring, critical consciousness, persistence, and emancipation—reframe media literacy as relevant to the social, political and technological realities of contemporary life. To register for this event, click here.

    Paul Mihailidis is an associate professor of journalism and civic media in the school of communication at Emerson College in Boston, MA, where he teaches media literacy, civic media, and community activism. He is founding program director of the MA in Civic Media: Art & Practice, Principle Investigator of the Emerson Engagement Lab, and faculty chair and director of the Salzburg Academy on Media and Global Change.

    A War to End All Wars, 100 Years Since WWI

    Join the Library Associates and the Booth Family Center for Special Collections for a gallery talk detailing the exhibition, A War to End All Wars? which will run from Feburary - June 2018 in the Fairchild Gallery, Special Collections Gallery, and Leon Robbin Gallery on the 5th Floor of Lauinger Library.

    In collaboration with the Department of Art & Art History, the event will feature a lecture from Keyser Family Professor of Art History Elizabeth Prelinger, guest curator of the exhibition.

    The multifaceted exhibition will be drawn primarily from the Center’s permanent holdings with additions from Prelinger’s own collection. Organized around eight major themes, the show will explore art, culture, and history by assembling an exciting variety of objects—from posters to poetry to anti-gas eye shields. One theme examines Georgetown University’s own connections with the War, while another showcases original World War I sheet music. Thanks to Georgetown’s creative collecting over many decades, the exhibition abounds with unusual and unforgettable items that will bring alive to current viewers this catastrophic and world-changing event.

    Reception to follow program. Click here to RSVP for the event.

Please note that, while Apprenticeship in Teaching (AT) workshops are open to faculty, they are designed for graduate students. Presentations and many of the exercises are designed for instructors with relatively little teaching experience. Some workshops are more appropriate than others for those with more teaching experience. Faculty with a particular interest in one of the AT workshops should contact James Olsen before registering.
