Presented by Dr. Micah Oelze, Visiting Assistant Professor, Department of History

Instagram. Twitter. Soundcloud. Facebook. They promise global connection-making, but how can they deliver on this promise if students can’t see beyond their smartphones? In this workshop Oelze will reveal the research skills and components embedded within social media platforms. Learn how these apps can spark engaging, exciting research projects that develop global learning outcomes and other course objectives.

“Challenging Cultural Appropriation and Orientalism in the Flipped Classroom” 

Monday, November 5, 2018, Green Library Rm. 220, 12:00-1:15 p.m.

Presented by Dr. Steven Vose, Bhagwan Mahavir Assistant Professor of Jain Studies Director, Jain Studies Program Department of Religious Studies

Part of the mission of GL courses is to engage students with the wider world in order to develop their global awareness.Faculty often find that in doing so, however, they need to challenge Orientalism, cultural appropriation, or student views that venture into latent or explicit forms of stereotyping or racism. This workshop will examine how instructors may turn these into teachable moments, balancing student learning about other cultures with other course goals.
