PhD+ Workshop: Values Driven Pedagogy
November 30, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
| Humanities 1, Room 210
Defining a Values Driven Pedagogy Practice with Kendra Dority (CITL, UCSC Lit PhD)
This workshop invites participants to consider how teaching can be a site in which we define, cultivate, and enact a set of values. What values are communicated—explicitly and implicitly—in our classrooms through our teaching methods and assignments? How do pedagogical situations present opportunities for us to claim values that may contradict or transform institutional norms?
Kendra Dority, Associate Director for Programs at the UCSC Center for Innovations in Teaching and Learning (CITL), will share her perspectives on pursuing post-PhD work that aligns with her values, and the pedagogical contexts that facilitated a values-driven inquiry. She will then facilitate activities and discussion around participants’ own values in relation to their teaching contexts.
