Spring Speaker Event
On April 18th, ACERT will host Patricia Matthew for our Spring Speaker Event. Professor Matthew will deliver a talk entitled “Reflections on the ‘Free’ in Academic Freedom: Diversity and the Scholar Activist.” In the talk, Professor Matthew will argue for the importance of sustaining a diverse academic ecosystem in a moment when all faculty, but particularly faculty of color, face important choices about how to do their work. Her talk will be based on the research she completed for the “Activism(s)” section of Written/Unwritten, her work with scholars like Jessie Daniels and Tressie McMillan Cottom on the urgent need to protect intellectual and academic freedom, and her discussions with scholars from around the country.
The event will take place from 4:30 pm – 6:30 pm in the Faculty Dining Room on the 8th floor of Hunter West. More information and details will be available on the ACERT webpage here.
In collaboration with the Online Learning Center, we have planned a number of online workshops and webinars including the following:
- Tuesday, February 27th: Using Blackboard’s Grade Center to Encourage Student Self-Directed Learning (5:00 pm – 6:30 pm, online)
