Professional Development
8.) Faculty—Last chance to register: Learn about being your authentic self in the classroom and how faculty identities matter
Noon – 1:45 p.m. Sept. 4 Delphi Center, Ekstrom Library, Belknap Campus
Educators often help their students negotiate their identities in the classroom and work hard to create safe classroom norms where all students are respected. Faculty, too, must navigate their way through the sometimes tricky maze of disclosing their own identities and deciding how much to share about themselves. In this interactive session, we will consider how identity works in the classroom.
