Jun 10, 2009  

The Center for Teaching and Learning is offering the mini-conference "Teaching, Learning, and Tomorrow's Students: Multicultural and Global Perspectives" to all OHIO faculty, graduate students and staff. The informative event will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday, June 18, at the Faculty Commons and Friends of the Library Room on the third floor of Alden Library. Registration is required but there is no cost to attend the mini-conference. Lunch will be provided.

The mini-conference will address a range of issues concerning teaching, learning and the increasing diversity that our students and we as teachers will experience in the classroom, workplace and global community. Sessions will include addressing "taboo" topics in the classroom, Ohio University demographics and effective ways to incorporate multiculturalism and globalization into the curriculum and classroom.

The keynote presenter will be Mark Orbe, OHIO alumnus and professor of communication and diversity at Western Michigan University. Orbe's address is titled "Diversity and Higher Education: Preparing Students to Make a World of Difference."
