Diversity & Pedagogy Workshop: Creating Positive Social Cues in Teaching and Advising at Reed with Kathy Oleson
Wednesday, November 7
Our surroundings are full of cues that may create, perpetuate, and inform students’ sense of belonging, well-being, academic engagement, and scholarly achievement. While participating in class, working with course material, meeting with faculty members, and engaging in activities in various institutional environments, students may experience—prompted in part by social signals—concerns and disrupted attention that hamper their academic performance. This conversation, led by Reed faculty member Kathy Oleson will focus on identifying practical skills and behaviors that foster and perpetuate positive social cues in our teaching and advising.
