The Fisher Family, Robert and Marie Secor, and the John Moore Teaching Mentorship in English present Christina Katopodis.
How do we make the transition from the hierarchical, inequitable, output-driven academy we inherited from the nineteenth century to a higher education that empowers all students to be their own best selves, modeling a more democratic, flourishing, and just society? How do we make this transition in our own classrooms? In this interactive workshop, Christina Katopodis, coauthor with Cathy N. Davidson of the award-winning book, The New College Classroom (Harvard University Press 2022), presents what the latest science of learning tells us about inclusive learning. She shares teaching strategies that anyone can adapt easily and effectively into their classes to make structural changes as well as grab-and-go activities that educators around the world are using successfully every day to ensure their students’ lifelong success—and to revitalize their own commitment to a better world.
