DIG: Graduate Workshop with Kim Solga


Since March 2013 I've been writing a blog, titled The Activist Classroom (find me on Wordpress). In it I reflect on what it means to be a teacher who activates my students - critically, socially, politically. But what does an "activist" teacher do, exactly? What strategies does she employ? What are - or should be? - the limits of classroom activism? What more should we be doing? This workshop will offer a chance for student teachers/professors-in-training to think critically about their own pedagogical practice, as well as about broader teaching philosophies and pragmatics, as we share experiences and tips, talk about what teaching undergraduate students in the arts means right now, and consider the crucial role of mentorship in the process of professorial training.
