On Wednesday, Oct. 8, Yevette Richards, Department of Women’s Studies, will present “Combining Images, Narration, and Text to Create a Sensory-Rich Learning Experience on the Subject of Maida Springer, a Black Woman International Labor Leader.” The event will be held in the Johnson Center, Assembly Room C, from 2:30 to 4 p.m.

The session, sponsored by the Center for Teaching Excellence and the Instructional Resource Center, will explore the pedagogical and technical methods used by Richards when she captured the interviews with Springer using audio clips from taped interviews, photographs, and text woven together with a presentation tool. These methods can be applied anywhere from business to history and geography.

The next event cosponsored by the Center for Teaching Excellence and the Instructional Resource Center will feature Adele Camus, Laura Miller, and Kathy Trump–all faculty members in the English Language Institute–as they present “Understanding of Cultural Perspectives when Assessing Students’ Writing.” It is held Friday, Oct. 24, from noon to 1:30 p.m. in Innovation Hall, Room 334.
