Keynote speaker: José Bowen, author, "Teaching Naked: How Moving Technology Out of Your Classroom Will Improve Student Learning" 


Ongoing:

Equity Through Inquiry 
Professional Learning Community
Co-sponsored by the ADVANCE Grant and the CTL

A model community flourishes when it is an open and diverse one. On its face, this is an inarguable claim. But to *be* a model diverse community requires first a candid grappling with the structural and human obstacles to openness and inclusiveness. Only such a grappling can produce a community whose attitudes and practices are worthy of emulation.

2013-14 Professional Learning Community (PLC) devoted to the study and discussion of bias (in both its overt and covert forms).

This PLC shall seek to build on the June 2012 Report of the ad hoc Commission on Diversity and Inclusion (created by President Krendl in November 2011 and charged with examining environmental factors and organizational culture in order to create a multi-year plan for Diversity and Inclusion at Otterbein), and on questions being pursued as part of the National Science Foundation Institutional Transformation Advance Grant "Equity Through Inquiry" (whose Principal Investigators are Drs. Michele Acker, Sarah Bouchard, and Carrigan Hayes).
