Engaging Pedagogy Conference 2019

RegisterNowButton13.png

May 15, 2019 - Texas Lutheran University, Seguin

When we are at our best, students learn to critically reflect on their learning and life practices. They learn to creatively adapt what they know to serve a diverse community in an ever evolving world. National trends tell us that colleges and universities struggle to help students persist and succeed in this endeavor. In answer to this struggle, we will critically reflect on our own teaching and learning, and creatively adapt what we know to serve our diverse community of students, and by so doing, we can be at our very best. 

The Engaging Pedagogy conference is hosted by the Texas Lutheran University Center for Teaching and Learning. The Center for Teaching and Learning, established in 2013, provides development and resource support to faculty, staff, and students committed to sharing and enhancing effective strategies for teaching and learning. The Center is committed to creating an educational environment that is socially just and inclusive of our diverse community.

9:15 A.M. KEYNOTE SPEAKER: DR. KRISTIE A. FORD – INTERGROUP DIALOGUE PEDAGOGY IN ACTION 

Through a combination of theory and practice, this applied keynote will highlight the opportunities and challenges of Intergroup Dialogue (IGD) by providing an overview of how IGD promotes and sustains conversations about challenging justice-related topics among students of differing perspectives and social identity groups. Dr. Kristie A. Ford is professor of sociology and the Director of the Center for Leadership, Teaching, and Learning (CLTL) at Skidmore College. She received her B.A. in sociology from Amherst College and her M.A. and Ph.D. in sociology from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Her research and teaching interests include race and ethnicity, gender and sexuality, and social justice education. More specifically, Professor Ford explores the connections between race, intersecting social identities, and the body in various arenas and using diverse approaches. In three such projects she examines these issues in relation to (1) women of color faculty experiences in academia, (2) intergroup interactions in peer-facilitated service-learning and social justice courses, and (3) appearance ideals in the Black community. Professor Ford’s courses, including Femininities and Masculinities, Race and Power, and Sociology of the Body reflect these scholarly interests, as do her service commitments, which include the development of the Black Faculty and Staff Group and Intergroup Relations Program at Skidmore College. For her work, she has received several honors, including: The President's Award at Skidmore College, the NAACP Community Service Award, and the Regional Leadership Council on Inclusion Award.
