DPD Faculty Seminar
The DPD Program offers the Faculty Development Seminar once a year to the OSU faculty who regularly teach classes at OSU. The goals of this seminar are:
- To introduce disciplinary and interdisciplinary scholarship and perspectives on race, gender, class, sexual identity and other institutionalized systems of inequality in the United States;
- To provide resources for planning, revising and teaching courses for the DPD requirement;
- To develop pedagogical strategies for incorporating multicultural diversity in the classroom;
- To increase awareness and sensitivity to difference;
- To provide the basis for an ongoing community discussion in which issues of difference can be addressed among colleagues across disciplines.
Applications Due April 1, 2013
The Summer 2013 DPD Faculty Seminar offers a unique professional development opportunity for faculty.
The seminar helps faculty members transform their curricula around issues of difference, power, and discrimination through critical examination of systems of oppression, group process, and pedagogy. This three-week intensive seminar will draw both on a wide variety of readings from experts in diversity and social inequality and participants’ own experiences and knowledge, and will model a range of pedagogical practices that help students examine and understand difference, power, and discrimination.
The Summer 2013 faculty seminar is open to all faculty members, with preference given to academic/teaching faculty. Nine month faculty members receive a $3000 stipend for their participation. All other interested faculty members are welcome to participate, and will receive a $1000 professional development stipend. Books and other materials are provided. There is limited space, so timely submission of your application is encouraged.
Faculty participants will have the following responsibilities during the seminar:
o Participation: Attend all seminar sessions during Summer term 2013;
o Analysis: Read and discuss assigned readings that relate to DPD theories and pedagogy;
o Teaching: Engage with other seminar participants in ideas about new courses and teaching strategies;
Faculty participants will have the following responsibilities during the 2013-2014 academic year:
o Application: Integrate the concepts you learned in the seminar into your professional activities, and partcipate in a paired-peer mentoring experience.
