Pedagogies for Understanding Race

Pedagogies for Understanding Race

This session provides ideas and examples for enhancing pedagogy and engaging students effectively when teaching courses with a focus on race.    The session will include brief presentations from a faculty panel representing a range of fields.  The ideas will be provocative and useful, whether one wants to create a module, an assignment, or a whole course redesign.   In addition, participants will receive an overview of the events and lectures planned for the 2013 LSA Theme Semester, Understanding Race, including ideas for engaging with the exhibit, "RACE: Are we so different?"
