Preservice Training: A Humanistic Pedagogy Approach

Zoom and In-Person

James E. Walker Library (LIB)

More Details

Based on the work of a 2022-2023 FLC, this workshop will give an overview of humanizing pedagogy and how it has been applied to teacher education. However, this workshop is not just for those in education; members of the FLC will share how each person extended the principles of humanistic pedagogy to the courses in their individual discipline. Join us if you are interested in learning more about topics such as engaging in critical self-reflection and conversations, resisting binaries, and creating a humanistic classroom environment.

If you're looking for some just-in-time training or want to dig a little deeper into a specific topic of interest, MTSU subscribes to both Teaching Professor ("reflects the changing needs of today's college faculty and the students they teach") and Academic Leader ("reflects the evolving needs of academic deans, department chairs and heads, program directors, and others with leadership responsibilities") online publications. If attempting to access either publication off-campus, you'll be asked to enter your MTSU credentials.

If you have an idea for a potential future workshop, please feel free to send your suggestions to Dr. Lando Carter.
