    A current graduate student at Wake Forest University’s School of Divinity, Jenny/Jeni Mai (they, them, theirs) was awarded the “MLK Building the Dream Award” in Spring 2018 for their justice work in domestic violence and sexual assault, their homeless advocacy within the Winston-Salem community, and their racial justice work at Sunnyside Freedom Schools here in Winston-Salem. In this lecture Jeni will discuss their formative journey as a black, multiracial, queer, trans non-binary person at Wake Forest University, and how that experience has empowered them to dream up radical healing spaces for the black, brown, queer, disabled, poor, colonized, femme, indigenous, immigrant, and enslaved bodies that exist at their institution and within their communities.
  • ZSR Library, 665 TLC Classroom
    Join us to discuss how specifications grading (Nilson, 2014) might work in your class. All assignments are evaluated on a high-standards pass/fail basis, and students' final course grade is determined by the number of assignments or units successfully completed. This system fosters student motivation, maintains high standards while reducing instructor workload, and puts the emphasis on achievement and constructive feedback rather than on numbers or letters. Professor Gellar-Goad will present the basics of the system, some tips for making good assignment checklists, and the advantages and disadvantages of working with specs grading.

    Being an excellent university teacher means (re)considering your teaching at a number of different levels: face-to-face interaction with students, your training/education, course design, implementation of learning goals, and assessments. In their book, An Evidence Based Guide to College and University Teaching, Richmond, Boysen & Gurung (2016) describe a model they developed to encompass the dimensions of excellent teaching. In this workshop, we will learn about the teaching competencies outlined in their model, practice self-reflection on how to improve our model teaching, and get specific tips and ideas to use in the classroom.
