Teaching to Transgress: bell hooks reading series

Wednesday, October 24, 2012 at 12:00pm to 2:00pm

Alexandroff Campus Center, 8th Floor Faculty Center 600 S. Michigan, Chicago, IL 60605

“The classroom remains the most radical space of possibility in the academy.”
 --bell hooks



How do we know when we are educating our students to be truly independent thinkers? Is that the real purpose of our teaching? Should it be? How do we address students who resist non-traditional teaching methods?

 Bring your successes, bring your challenges, and brainstorm with your colleagues using the provocative ideas of bell hooks’ book, Teaching to Transgress: Education as the Practice of Freedom. 

This series of conversations will spur us to imagine what kind of classroom we want to create and develop the practical steps for making our vision a reality.
