    Teach the Speech Teach-In

    As part of Georgetown’s “Let Freedom Ring!” Initiative, please join us for a half-day faculty and staff gathering to examine how we might “Teach the Speech” in our courses and campus work this spring. This year, the selected speech is Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop”. The event will begin with a community gathering for lunch, followed by a 12:00 PM keynote speech by Clarence E. Hardy III, Ph.D., Associate Professor of the History of American Christianity at Yale Divinity School. After the keynote, Georgetown faculty and staff will reflect on their own experiences teaching the speech, and then there will be a design workshop for incorporating this year's speech.

    Hosted and facilitated by the Center for Social Justice Research, Teaching and Service (CSJ) & the Center for New Designs in Learning and Scholarship (CNDLS)

    Campus Safety Net Training

    Safety Net Training is designed to help attendees gain knowledge and build competence managing situations that involve Georgetown students’ health, wellness, and safety, especially around issues of depression, anxiety, extreme stress, suicidality, self-harm, and abuse of drugs and alcohol. The training is an opportunity to learn and talk about our students' health-related experiences and behaviors, campus resources and effective referral mechanisms. It is primarily focused on discussing the undergraduate experience. All new staff members are encouraged to attend Safety Net Training, but the session is also for senior-level colleagues who have not attended recently.

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.
