How race is lived in “real” life is how race is lived in cyberspace is a commonly held hypothesis. Join us as we examine this supposition via an examination of the book text titled Race in Cyberspace, Kolka, B, Nakamura, L, & Rodman, G. (Ed.). Topics to be examined will include the role language plays in the construction of racialized online identities; offline representations of cyberspace as a racially coded environment; and the impact technology and education has on race equity. Register now to ensure your participation in what will be a dynamic book club event. A copy of this compelling book will be forwarded to you once registration is completed. Quantities are limited to the first 14 registered. Each person shall receive a copy of each publication through campus mail. In the event that registered participants are not able to attend, we ask you return your book to CETL MB# 5400

Thirty years ago Pink Floyd’s Another Brick in the Wall exclaimed “we don’t need no education,” Hip Hop’s prevailing attitudes about higher education echoes a similar sentiment. Considering more than 85% of millennial students self-identify as active participants in hip hop culture, examining the convergence and divergence between hip hop culture and higher education may be a pivotal in understanding the millennial generation. Join the “serious fun” as we examine hip hop historiography, anti-intellectualism, and higher education.

Engaging teaching cannot adequately be achieved without diversity as a core value. Yet, the tendency is to continue to make assumption about methodology, theory, and practiced in the classroom to meet diversity goals. The research on diversity clearly validates the ideal that learning and teaching diversity in the classroom enhances social development, increases student knowledge of others, prepare students to engage in a global society, and promotes creativity and self-awareness, among other things. Thus this workshop will address: * seminal theories and scholarship connected to teaching diverse populations
* the do's and don'ts of classroom management
* cross-cultural communication and the classroom, and
* best practices (what works and why)
Please join us to hear and share the best approaches to achieve Goal 6 of KSU's Strategic Plan.

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.

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.

Later, during three years of brutal captivity at the hands of the Japanese, they also demonstrated their ability to survive. Filled with the thoughts and impressions of the women who lived it, "every page of this history is fascinating" (The Washington Post).
