Come join Carol Pope at CETL as she dispels the misconceptions of specific need for students with disabilities. Faculty will be offered compliance information, review of relevant case studies, and general issues connected to time use, testing, and on-line learning. In order to be more effective in the classroom it is necessary to insure that all of our students are offered the best possible opportunities to succeed. Join us as we demonstrate ways such an ideal can be achieved in the curriculum and campus-wide.
Using the Development Model of Intercultural Sensitivity as a theoretical foundation, this workshop will brainstorm and discuss best practices for integrating intercultural and global learning into education abroad. Faculty participants will examine a variety of resource materials aimed at promoting intercultural and global learning and be encouraged to develop research projects/questions building upon the concepts and materials covered.

While a growing literature documents African history, cultural diversity, and contemporary trends, there is a glaring lack of accessible work on the initiatives of individuals and institutions currently tackling Afro-pessimism and Afro-ignorance among U.S. civil society. Therefore, the CETL-funded KSUAfricanist Faculty Learning Community is sponsoring a mini-symposium titled, "Teaching Africa in the 21st Century Classroom" in conjunction with an anticipated edited-volume on the same theme. The multidisciplinary participants will consist of contributing authors from KSU and other Georgia Colleges and Universities. This event is open to the public. Anyone interested in strategies for bringing Africa into university classrooms or would simply like to learn something about this diverse continent and its people are encouraged to attend.
The workshop will close with a Wine and Goldfish reception for all attendees.
