Pedagogies of Translation
While translation is often assumed to be the transformation of words from one language to another, this lecture and workshop will consider definitions of translation broadly, including transforming information across languages, contexts, and audiences. Translation is defined here as an academic, community, and pedagogical practice that pushes communicators to adapt their thoughts and ideas to meet the needs and expectations of various audiences and rhetorical situations. Join us for an interactive lecture and workshop series with Dr. Laura Gonzales on Friday February 24th. RSVP here.
Studying for Memory and Comprehension
Recalling information is one of the most important academic skills and will be needed in almost all of your courses. Whether you are seeking to improve your study skills or preparing for an exam, this resource can help you tackle memorizing and retaining large amounts of information through science-backed study methods and strategies. We will also be hosting a workshop about studying for memory, where you can create personalized study plans and leave with supplies. RSVP here for the next iteration of this workshop on February 22.
Generative AI & the College Classroom
ChatGPT and several other generative AI tools have broad implications for teaching and learning. This guide represents the CEP’s initial research on generative artificial intelligence and its implications in the higher education classroom, with recommendations for classroom activities, assignment design, and academic integrity, and considerations for AI detection software and student privacy.
At the Center for Engaged Pedagogy, we believe that teaching and learning is a transformative process. Both students and teachers engage in meaningful teaching and learning practices that foster mutual growth and facilitate the collaborative cultivation of knowledge. We are committed to supporting and striving towards inclusive and innovative pedagogical practices that acknowledge diverse ways of knowing, forms of expertise, and academic pathways.
