CETL Topical Sessions for September
Practical Applications of Sentipensante (Sensing/Thinking) Pedagogy: Educating for Wholeness, Social Justice & Liberation by Laura Rendón
David Hernandez-Saca, Shelley Price-Williams, & Sarah Montgomery
Thursday 9/15 12:00-12:50p.m. via Zoom
Dr. Laura Rendón is a renowned scholar on supporting the success of students of color and first-generation college students in higher education. In her book she proposed Sentipensante Pedagogy - a “transformative vision of education that emphasizes the harmonic, complementary relationship between the sentir of intuition and the inner life and the pensar of intellectualism and the pursuit of scholarship; between teaching and learning; formal knowledge and wisdom; and between Western and non-Western ways of knowing.”
Join this session to learn the basic principles of Sentipensante Pedagogy and practical applications of this framework for your work at UNI!
Shaping the Narrative: Asset Based vs. Deficit Based Messaging
Ericka Gonzalez-Smith (Institutional Effectiveness and Planning)
Wednesday September 21 - 2pm-3pm - Rod 378 & via Zoom
This session will introduce participants to the concept of Asset Framing, a narrative model that defines people by their assets before their challenges and deficits. Through an interactive discussion, participants will explore how deficit messaging may harm students, and will identify ways to change the way we speak about and see our students. The interactive activities in this workshop will challenge the participant’s perspectives and associations through the exploration of a growth mindset.
