Dear Colleague,I love that the university is doing this. Will you help me brainstorm how to participate?
A teach-in is being planned for the purpose of mutual education among students, faculty and staff of the GVSU community. The teach-in is designed to address topics related to inequality and systems of oppression, as well as social justice and liberation. Recognizing the multi-faceted dimensions of these topics, we are planning this teach-in as a day-long event.
The details are as follows:
Date: Wednesday, March 26th
Time: 8am – 10pm
Location: Exhibition Hall, Mary Idema Pew Library (Room 040)
The learning objectives of the teach-in are to raise awareness, share knowledge, and create dialogue. Therefore, in an effort to involve as many students, faculty and staff as possible, we will be adhering to the MWF class schedule, with the possibility of fourteen 50-minute sessions, each starting on the hour.
We hope that you will attend as many sessions as your schedule allows and encourage your students to attend.
If you’re interested in taking a more active role, you’re encouraged to work with other colleagues around campus to propose a 50 minute session. Please keep in mind that a teach-in is practical, participatory and action oriented. We especially encourage contributions with an intersectional framework (race, class, gender, sexuality, religion, ability, etc.). Sessions may include student leaders as co-presenters or panelists.
I have an intro to math class, and a grad class on secondary math education issues that meet during this time.
Thanks for any ideas!
