LEAP and FTEP are co-sponsoring four interrelated workshops in the Spring and
Fall 2007 semesters designed to cultivate leadership capabilities and hone
pedagogic skills in junior faculty, graduate students, and post-doctoral
candidates in the arts, sciences, and humanities at CU. Organized by Dr.
Melinda Barlow, Associate Professor of Film Studies, these workshops take a
"brass tacks" approach to key professional and pedagogical concerns (authority,
incivility, effective oratory, and successful professional development) and
consider how factors of gender, race, sexual orientation, and disability impact
the issues at hand. Participants may attend as many, or as few, workshops as
their schedules allow. Each workshop is limited to 50 participants, and
advance registration is required. Lunch will be provided.
The first workshop will take place on:
Wednesday March 7th, 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. Aspen Rooms, UMC
Role-Modeling Difference: How to Achieve Authority Through Diversity
Achieving, exuding, and maintaining classroom authority is a common concern for
teachers at every stage of their careers, and is intricately linked to
attaining authority in other aspects of professional life-through research, at
conferences, and in various service or administrative capacities. But where
does classroom confidence come from? How can we cultivate professional
"presence" in ourselves, and thus role model it effectively for our students?
And in what ways may authority be both challenged by and enhanced through
various personal and cultural differences, like those of race, gender, sexual
orientation and physical ability? This workshop investigates the relationship
between authority and diversity, and seeks to help participants develop their
own practical strategies for attaining personal and professional authority by
utilizing and thus modeling their differences for their students.
