Featuring Brian Dewsbury

In this talk we will re-examine the role that a liberal, inclusive and equity-minded higher education can play in creating and sustaining a socially just society. We will consider the behaviors, attitudes, mindsets and strategies that create classrooms where students are prepared to be active participants in an evolving democracy. Agnostic to discipline, this pedagogy asks us to reconsider teaching as a humanistic enterprise, and as an explicit cultivation of developing empathetic and agentic students. Strategies for our own relearning and consideration will also be discussed.
