Experiential Assignments: Fostering Empathy and Critical Thinking

Tuesday, November 28, 12:15 p.m. - 2:15 p.m., CEE Conference Room, Camino Hall 1F
Presented by Dr. Jillian Tullis, Assistant Professor, Communication Studies
Coffee and light snacks will be provided

Drawing on information from the Lilly-Conference on Designing
Effective Teaching, this session will focus on experiential learning
as a strategy for fostering the characteristics of an ideal learning
environment. Using the SNAP/Food Stamp Challenge as a case
study, participants will explore how an interactive assignment can
allow empathy, foster critical thinking, and practice writing up data.
Participants are encouraged to bring an idea or topic they would
like to develop into an experiential learning project or assignment.

Friday, December 1, 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m., Humanities Center Salon (SH 200)
Facilitated by Dr. Maura Giles-Watson, Assistant Professor, English and Paul Evans, Post-Doctoral Fellow in Digital Humanities

This month’s FFF Book Raffle is Debates in the Digital Humanities by Matthew K. Gold.

Digital Humanities (DH) is an interdisciplinary field that combines modes of inquiry from the humanities and humanistic social sciences with computational and scientific modes of inquiry. How does DH define and then apply critical thinking in teaching, learning, and undergraduate research? How is DH different from traditional modes of discipline-centered critical inquiry in higher education?

•  Define critical thinking in the DH context.
•  Provide participants with information about newly available DH resources
•  Encourage participants to envision their own small-scale DH projects.
•  Generate critical thinking about technology and its effects
