Professor in the Program in Adult Education and the Institute for Women's Studies at The University of Georgia, Dr. Juanita Johnson-Bailey researches culturally inclusive pedagogies and offers professional development in related areas of teaching and research.
BSU has become an institution energized and remade by a wide variety of teaching/learning and research initiatives that have flourished in the fertile ground of our campus community. We invite you to a day of discussion and practice devoted to deepening our collective understanding of these initiatives and what they mean day-to-day in our classrooms; to the students that populate them; the campus, with its mission and history; and the communities beyond Bridgewater that are home to instructors, students, and initiatives alike.
Faculty will have the opportunity to attend workshops and focus tables on a variety of topics including evaluating speaking, culturally inclusive pedagogies, preparing students for reading difficult texts, and working with second language students.
Please join us at our third annual faculty professional development day on Tuesday, 5 May 2009 (reading day), in the Moakley Center. We promise useful information and lively discussion with thoughtful colleagues.
The May 5 schedule overview is available here (PDF); click here (PDF) for the full schedule. The overview will provide you with enough information to get you where you want to go; please print the full schedule only as needed. Limited copies of the full schedule will be available on May 5.
Dr. Juanita Johnson-Bailey, the keynote speaker of the day, will be co-presenting a workshop entitled "Culturally Inclusive Research = Comprehensive, Accurate, & Holistic Inquiry" with Dr. Donna Drake-Clark and Dr. Mitsunori Misawa, all from University of Athens, Georgia.
