CFA: Workshop on Teaching and Learning, September 2017
Workshop on Teaching and Learning in Philosophy
With Special Emphasis on Inclusive Pedagogy
Call for Applications
The American Association of Philosophy Teachers is conducting a workshop on Teaching and Learning in Philosophy and invites applications to participate.
Participants will read some of the best literature regarding how learning happens, how to design maximally effective courses, and how to improve classroom practice with a special emphasis on inclusive pedagogy. The goal is not primarily to provide tips, although we will provide some. Rather, the workshop is designed to enhance participants’ ability to make highly effective pedagogical choices that enable all students to flourish. The interactive sessions provide opportunities for participants to reflect with colleagues on how to individualize evidence-based best teaching practices to their own idiosyncratic teaching contexts and their own understanding about what matters most for inclusive pedagogy. Participants will learn how to identify and select challenging, transformative, and inclusive learning objectives and how to design and assess sequences of learning activities to make the achievement of those goals highly likely. The friendships and collegial relationships begun here can last a lifetime.
