Saturday, November 03 - 9:00AM to 11:00AM
Honors College Forum
Taken from inspiration of the recent SPE Exposure Article "Nothing Changes if Nothing Changes" and #firstdayfirstimage project - this panel discussion will include presentations from panelists and sharing from the attendees on methods of promoting diversity in classroom teaching and learning in photography and its history. In addition to the panel presentation, all 25 attendees will be asked to provide 5-10 slides or an assignment etc in advance of the session to share with peers that will be available for download. The panel presentations will be made available as well.
Participants will share concrete examples of specific in class techniques such as how they integrate diversity into course topics, classroom discussions, lectures and readings. They will be asked to share class assignments, which encourage students to learn about their own, and others experiences. Collaboration with community and organizational groups which promote diversity such as the Center for Photography at Woodstock and En Foco will also be discussed.
