Part of the CEE's mission is to inspire faculty to learn and engage with new or different teaching strategies. Our Innovative Pedagogies program is designed to provide inspiration through various mediums such as guest speakers, conferences, and workshops.
In the past years several years, we have focused on universal design learning (UDL), problem-based learning, community engagement, and flipping your classroom.

Workshop - Respect the Process: Examining Our Social Justice Perspectives: Thursday, March 11th | 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. (PT) | Zoom | Register Here

Through interactive activities, this workshop help participants
examine their own perspectives of their social justice work and ideas about diversity, privilege, and intersectionality. Participants will gain a better understanding of how institutional power that reproduces injustice, social exclusion, and oppression, despite our best efforts, is embedded in our social justice work.

Keynote - We Gon' Be Alright, But That Ain't Alright: Abolitionist Teaching and the Pursuit of Educational Freedom: Thursday, March 11th | 4:00 - 5:00 p.m. (PT) | Zoom | Register Here

Dr. Bettina Love will discuss the struggles and the possibilities of committing ourselves to an abolitionist goal of educational freedom, as opposed to reform, and moving beyond what she calls the educational survival complex. Abolitionist Teaching is built on the creativity, imagination, boldness, ingenuity, and rebellious spirit and methods of abolitionists to demand and fight for an educational system where all students are thriving, not simply surviving.

⇒ The CEE is also offering a Reading Circle on Dr. Bettina Love's book We Want to Do More Than Survive for a an opportunity to meet with colleagues and discuss the book (provided by the CEE). Learn more here.
