Break Out Session Descriptions
- Illumination Project - Practicing Pluralism
- Jeannie LeFrance and Debbie Stone, MAHB 104
- Have you ever been confronted by a difficult situation or conversation dealing with issues of diversity? Have you ever walked away from one of those situations thinking about the ten other things you could have said or done? This interactive theater session was developed by Cascade staff and faculty and is based on the work of PCC's Illumination Project. This workshop will provide the unique opportunity to practice (or watch others practice) various methods of addressing issues of diversity at Cascade. Come watch your fellow Cascadians perform and learn different ways of dealing with difficult situations in a fun, safe atmosphere!
- Getting "It" to Stick: Using Brain Research to Improve Teaching
- Monica Schneider, MAHB 214
- This session will provide participants with the opportunity to learn more about using brain research to improve teaching. Concepts for brain research will be used to develop classroom strategies to better engage students, maximize learning, and energize the classroom!
- Learning in the Community: Service Learning at Cascade
- Jennifer Alkezweeny and Elena McGrath, MAHB 215
- Service-Learning is a proven and effective teaching method that allows students to actively meet specific course objectives while engaging in service to the wider community, adding a strong experiential dimension to course work. Come learn basic Service-Learning concepts, about the on-going partnerships with Jefferson and Roosevelt High Schools, the resources available to you at PCC, and brainstorm on possibilities for including this method in your particular courses.
- Your Syllabus / Your Self: An Exposé on the Syllabus as Exposé
- Melody Wilson, MAHB 223
- Are we writing our syllabi for the correct audience? What do our students see in our syllabi? Do we really mean to send the messages we are sending? Come take a fresh look at these important documents as we learn to read between the lines.
