Graduate Student Workshops

Convener: Emily Gerstell, CTL Graduate Fellow, English

Summary: What does it mean for our classroom to be a “democratic space’? In this workshop, we will consider the various ways in which we can make the classroom more open and inclusive for all members of our class. We will discuss the role of group work and collaborative projects in creating a more democratic classroom, as well as the ways in which teaching about group identity can also help us move towards a more democratic classroom space.

All graduate students are welcome. This event grows out of concerns in English department and so may be most useful to students in related fields.
