Upcoming Event
11:30 AM - 12:30 PM
The Center for Applied Ethics Workshop: Social Responsibility and Ethical Reasoning: Teaching Diversity
Many ethical and social responsibility issues arise in the context of diversity. What is diversity? Why should students learn about it? What obstacles arise when teaching it? PRESENTERS: Glenda Jones (English and Philosophy) and Tina Lee (Social Sciences) will present and lead a discussion of such issues and how their courses address them.
11:00 AM - 1:00 PM
Resilience Training
Given the challenges facing us with the state budget and the uncertainties associated with it, I feel it is important to hold a campus-wide session on resilience. This session will be conducted by Gary Johnson, who is affiliated with the National Resilience Resource Center and is a local social worker. Gary also serves on the Stout IRB. I’ve spoken with him at length about the value of this training. He has conducted similar trainings with PK-12 educators in 2011 when Act 10 occurred, and more recently with public health workers. The goal of the session is to learn strategies for leadership, coping, and strength in the face of external uncertainties. The session will promote caring relationships and trust. Many people on campus are nervous, and some people feel undervalued and disrespected. Morale is low, and we have this opportunity to respond with a positive message. I hope you will be able to attend this session offered at no expense to the university.
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
The Center for Applied Ethics Workshop: Pedagogy that Promotes Academic Integrity
This session will explore some of the options James Lang suggests instructors use in his recent book Cheating Lessons: Learning from Academic Dishonesty (Harvard, 2013). Lang draws upon considerable empirical research into student cheating to explore proactive pedagogical changes instructors can make to encourage academic honesty and reduce academic dishonesty. Everyone is invited to discuss Lang’s ideas and examples and bring their own ideas and examples to the table.
