OFFERED ONLINE - Peer Editing in the Classroom: A Creative Approach
Instructors: Melanie Little
March 20, 2020, 12:30 - 1:30 p.m.
Having students review, critique, and edit one another’s work can be an effective means of developing their critical skills, improving their writing, and managing workload. But all too often, students approach peer editing with indifference and even dread—often for good reason. This workshop will offer creative and practical ideas for making peer-review and peer-editing more dynamic, engaging, and inclusive. NOTE: Over the course of the following two weeks, from March 20 through April 6, Melanie will welcome questions on the topic of peer editing. She will then prepare a compilation of these questions and answers to disseminate to all participants. See CTL Registration for details.

POSTPONED - Civility, Conflict, and Contradiction in the Classroom
Instructors: Erica Stevens Abbitt and Debbie Kane
This workshop will be rescheduled at a later date due to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).
This workshop explores issues of diversity, civility, and contradiction in the classroom, with a focus on role-playing and mediation techniques. The goal is to explore the notion that working skillfully across different points of view, interests and beliefs can enhance the teaching and learning experience.

Indigenous Curriculum and Pedagogy

Indigenous Curriculum & Pedagogy Winter Series 2020

POSTPONED - Meaningful Integration of Indigenous Epistemologies and Pedagogies
Instructor: Jaimie Kechego
This workshop will be rescheduled at a later date due to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Indigenization of curriculum requires much more than adding Indigenous content. In an education system that has, since its inception and into the present day, valued Western ways of thinking almost exclusively, Indigenization of curriculum requires us to bring Indigenous ways of thinking, being, and learning into course design. This session will provide a discussion of Indigenous epistemologies and pedagogies and how these can be interwoven in curriculum design and development.
