In his book, Radical Hope: A Teaching Manifesto, Kevin M. Gannon aims to help educators understand the idea of student “success” as moving from traditional viewpoints to more holistic and inclusionary approaches including well-being, thriving, belonging, and overall resilience. Gannon asks that we consider two significant questions in order to engage in radical hope in our university learning spaces: “Who are we as we present ourselves to our students?” and “What are we saying to students about how we perceive and receive them?” These questions frame the reimagination of course syllabi, classroom dynamics, and student engagement. Participants will receive a complimentary copy of the book. Facilitator: Michelle Corvette, Ph.D., Assistant Director, Center for Teaching and Learning.
Dr. Maha Bali, Associate Professor
