Campus community invited to 'Women in the Classroom: A Discussion of the Harvard Video Vignettes'
The campus community is invited to a discussion of the Harvard video vignettes on gender in the classroom. The event will be held from 3:30 to 5 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 16, in the Luann Dummer Center for Women, Room 103, O'Shaughnessy Educational Center.
The DVD viewing, "Women in the Classroom: A Discussion of the Harvard Video Vignettes," is co-sponsored by Faculty Development and the Luann Dummer Center for Women. Registration is not necessary; refreshments will be served.
Do students view female and male faculty differently? Do faculty interact with male and female students in the same way? How might race intersect with gender in the classroom?
These are a few of the questions addressed in the five Harvard video vignettes, created by the Derek Bok Center for Teaching and Learning and based on real classroom situations. The vignettes, all under five minutes, will be discussed to discern the issues raised and brainstorm strategies for addressing them, from both faculty and student perspectives.
