Teaching & Learning Conversation: Rachel David and Kathie Hunt, Library classroom 4214
Tues., Feb. 23: 1-2 p.m.
Dean of Humanities Kathie Hunt and Professor Rachel David lead a conversation about the very interesting question, How do we know if our unconscious biases affect students, and what can we do about them?

There’s a national conversation about race and power, and there’s a national conversation about community college students and their willingness to engage and ability to succeed.  But there is a smaller conversation that many instructors have with ourselves every day about whether our own understanding of the world helps or hinders our students. Join your colleagues for a safe conversation about a tender topic in order to deepen your teaching practice around student engagement.
