Call for Presentations for Teaching for Teaching for Social Justice & Democracy Speaker Series

Can you share ways you have integrated current social issues into your course to better engage your students? How have you helped them to develop their social, emotional and expressive capacities?

The Teaching For Social Justice & Democracy Series focuses on instructional strategies that Georgia State University faculty have used to successfully incorporate social justice themes into various subject areas and the resulting positive student outcomes.

The series started in Fall 2016 and now we are launching an award as well. We are seeking new speakers across Georgia State’s campuses. Format of the series:

  • Speakers has access to state of the art technology in CETL to display their presentation and media.
  • Speakers present for 45-60 minutes followed by Q&A.
