Talk About Just Living: Classroom Strategies for Social Justice Learning in the Public Sphere

Take advantage of the second annual Theme Semester Just Living in Spring 2016 to infuse your assignments with social justice issues that will resonate with your students. Give students the opportunity to engage in dialogue about social justice in public using your curriculum as their voice. Faculty can use assignments and projects to encourage students to engage with social justice issues and to learn what it means to participate in a public conversation.

This workshop will provide instructors the opportunity to reimagine how they can incorporate social justice into their curriculum and learn about opportunities for their students to showcase their work in public spaces. Participants will:

  • Discover opportunities and resources available for showcasing student work connected to the spring 2016 theme semester Just Living.
  • Learn how faculty and campus partners have promoted student work in public using the Learning Commons.
  • Revamp a current or previous assignment into something that can be displayed or performed in public.
  •  Infuse social justice themes into a current or previous assignment 
  • Learn how to use the Just Living website to market courses related to social justice.

Experienced guest instructors will share their insights and experiences in using the Learning Commons to promote their students’ work and will demonstrate future opportunities on campus to showcase student work publicly. Participants will leave with a variety of project ideas for classroom use and will have the opportunity to return for an optional, drop in working session the following week. Colleagues from the University Libraries, Learning Commons, and Office of Teaching, Learning, and Technology will be available for one-on-one consultation. The institute is open to all faculty and instructors. There is no cost to attend, although pre-registration to the institute is required. Please register here.
