Instructors from all disciplines are invited to participate in a wide-ranging conversation led by Ada Jaarsma and Kit Dobson, co-editors of Dissonant Methods: Undoing Discipline in the Humanities Classroom. Guided by moderator Natalie Loveless, panelists will discuss big questions: What learnings have come about as a result of teaching during a pandemic? How can teaching be resistant and sustainable? How can ideals such as critical thinking, creativity, and inclusivity be upheld in the classroom? Based on teaching research and practice, panelists will advance creative, collaborative, and arts-based strategies for disrupting forms of oppression in higher education. Attendees will be encouraged to share their experiences and ideas. Part of the CSSHE program.
