Radical Educator Workshop

+ Attending

Meeting: 7-8 pm, July 28

This would be a discussion group open to all educators, but it's particularly for adjunct instructors in higher education in the arts and humanities--many of us, I think, lack formal training in teaching and are hungry to share & give framework to our experiences. This class/meeting would be a space to discuss what our role is as teachers, what kind of space the classroom should be, how to inspire curiosity & critical thought, how to introduce political texts without being dismissed as an indoctrinator (and respond well to student resistance/critique), and whatever other concerns and questions the attendees are thinking about. Participants would also share challenging moments they've faced in the classroom and discuss what's worked, what hasn't worked, and what could have been done differently--it's in this sense that the meeting would be a "workshop." We'd address the challenges of teaching the way we'd like to teach while having to take on too many classes as adjuncts, but discussion will likely stay focused on teaching-related issues, rather than structural or academy-level issues.
