Certificate in University Teaching Seminar series October 24th event

Lesson Planning as Learning Planning

with Prof. William Robert, Religion

Tuesday, October 24, 5:00-6:30 PM

Hall of Languages 114

How can you plan learning? How can you plan class meetings that encourage and enkindle learning in and with your students, however diverse they might be? This workshop explores the stakes of these questions and possible cross-disciplinary responses to them. We will consider dynamic, creative approaches to planning and leading activities that seek to engender learning and achieve various kinds of learning objectives. The seminar will be in workshop format, so participants should bring a lesson plan from a class or discussion section that they have taught (or will teach, or would like to teach).

Immigrant Farmworker Health and Challenging Inequity: Presentation by Dr. Seth Holmes; October 24th

The Department of Anthropology in Conjunction With Food Studies Department Presents: Immigrant Farmworker Health and Challenging Inequity. October 24th, 2017, 4:00-5:00 pm, Maxwell Auditorium. This talk explores social hierarchies, health, health care and the naturalization and normalization of difference and inequality in the context of transnational US-Mexico im/migration. The talk is based on over 18 months field work with indigenous Mexican migrant farmworkers in Washington State, California and the Mexican State of Oaxaca. The talk analyzes social hierarchies based on citizenship, class, and race as well as the ways in which these inequalities lead to health disparities. The ethnographic data leads to a theorization of the ways in which inequalities come to be understood as normal and natural in society and in health care. Finally, the talk concludes with implications for how these processes might be changed for a more fair, equitable, just and healthy future for everyone. The talk presented by Dr. Seth Holmes of the University of California Berkeley, Department of Anthropology. If you have any questions or require accommodations, please contact JoAnn L Rhoades at jlrhoade@syr.edu

SPE/DSP 700: Narrating Competence: Exploring the Discourse of Autism

Autism Discourse/Narrative

Thursdays 4:00 – 6:45 PM

Huntington Hall 100

This course examines historical and current discourses of autism, in both the US and international contexts, through a variety of mediums and modalities, including research literature, autobiographies, film, television, blogs and fictional representations.  Primary consideration will be given to autobiographical and family accounts of autism, set against the backdrop of the larger cultural conversation. In addition to exploring how autism is represented, constructed, and enacted, we will explore implications for educational practice and research.

Occupational Therapy Project Seeks Participants

Dear potential volunteers,

Our names are Michael Tryon and Melanie Carlson, and we are occupational therapy graduate students at Utica College. We want to learn more about the experiences of college students who use mobility aids (wheelchair, crutches, scooter, walker, cane, prostheses, etc.).

All we need from you is about one hour of your time for an interview and for you to take 20 photos beforehand based on a prompt we will give you. We will use these photos to guide our interview, as they will help to describe your experience on campus. You will not be required to travel for this interview, we will come to you. However, you will need access to a camera (or smartphone) and a method to email the photos to us prior to the interview so that we can print them out.

As occupational therapy students, it is important for us to understand how those who use mobility aids experience college life. This project will help us fulfill the need to demonstrate our ability to conduct a research project from start to finish. The results of the interview will not be published (it is not official research), however, confidentiality will be upheld. If you believe that you are eligible to participate in our project and are interested, please email either Michael at mttryon@utica.edu or Melanie atmrcarlso@utica.edu. We are looking to begin the interview process as soon as possible. We think it's going to be really fun!
