Fairmount College’s Perspectives series returns with topic of pedagogy

Fairmount College of Liberal Arts and Sciences’ next Perspectives series will focus on pedagogy. This week’s Perspectives is on “Being an Ally in the Classroom.”

Occasionally students can make a statement or ask a question in class that is insensitive to classmates’ personal experiences. Panelists will discuss how to address such incidents in the classroom and include positive and negative examples. Dr. Andrew Hippisley, dean of the Fairmount College, will host, and Jean Griffith, associate professor of English and associate dean for diversity, equity and inclusion, will moderate the panel.

Each episode in the Perspectives series will be presented at 2 p.m. Tuesdays, through April 11 via Zoom. Recordings will be made available afterwards on the Fairmount College YouTube channel.
