Welcome to the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning
The 2016 election exposed particularly deep divisions between people in the United States. Disagreements about the meaning and importance of gender, class, regionalism, race and religion were - and continue to be - front and center in the news, on college campuses and maybe even in our classrooms. Join our panelists to hear how they talk about controversy and politics in the classroom. All are welcome.
Panels will be held on:
Tuesday, April 4, 12:30-1:30 in Library 287
Panelists: Cara Burnidge (Philosophy & World Religions) Donna Hoffman (Political Science), Justin Holmes (Political Science)
Wednesday, April 12, noon-1:00 in Elm Room, Maucker Union
Panelists: Ana Kogl (Political Science), Rachel Morgan (Languages & Literatures), Scott Peters (Political Science)
Co-sponsored by the Office of the President and the Department of Political Science
