AUGUST 2019 TLC FORUM
The Teaching and Learning Center is pleased to welcome Dr. Marcia Chatelain, Associate Professor of History and African American Studies at Georgetown University, as a keynote speaker for the August 2019 TLC Forum. Dr. Marcia Chatelain wrote about the need to Help First-Generation Students Master Academe’s ‘Hidden Curriculum’ in the Chronicle of Higher Education, and recently co-taught a course designed specifically for first-generation, low-income, and/or underrepresented students.
Dr. Chatelain will give a keynote, "Seven Habits of Highly Well Intentioned Faculty Members Trying to Make a Difference in the Classroom." She will also conduct an afternoon workshop, “Closing the Distance: Becoming the Educator You Want to Become and Students Need You to Be.”
In a dynamic, interactive conversation, Chatelain reminds her fellow faculty members that there is nothing to be afraid of in taking risks in the classroom, initiating difficult dialogues, and challenging our students to engage each other with courage and compassion. Participants will leave this workshop with a toolbox of resources for inclusive pedagogy and an enhanced understanding of how to truly make a difference in the classroom.
