Teaching in Troubled Times: A Conversation for Faculty, by Faculty

April 4, 12:00pm - 1:15pm
Mānoa Campus, Kuykendall 106 Events Room Add to Calendar

Classroom discussions are valuable opportunities for exchanges of ideas, experiences and perspectives. A kind of forum for faculty and students to sit together exploring what is known and knowledge that is unfolding, in-class discussions can bring up/focus on matters with contending points of view that may or not appear to be resolvable. Topics such as the climate crisis, political elections, military conflict, social and cultural characteristics and practices, to name a few. What approaches can faculty take that preserve academic freedom of speech as well as civility, without necessarily always achieving a state of balance on issues of great impact? Presented by: Kath Sands, American Studies; Lia Keawe, Kamakakūokalani Center for Hawaiian Studies; Colin Moore, Communication and Information/Matsunaga Institute for Peace; Tamara Ticktin, Botany; Kathy Ferguson, Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies/Political Science; Hazel Gedikli, Center for Teaching Excellence, moderator
