TEACHING STUDENTS TO BE BETTER PEOPLE
Assistant Professor of Communication Arts & Sciences Thomas Yannuzzi will raise questions about the social, institutional and personal challenges of this new pedagogical agenda during his lecture “Teaching Students to be ‘Better’ People: a Growing Challenge for Education Today” as part of the campus’s Faculty Forum on Tuesday, April 21 at 11:30 a.m. in the Vairo Library Lower Level Lounge. More specifically, the discussion will explore students’ motivations and ability to engage in such learning in times when social trends seem to place more emphasis on individualism and self promotion. The talk will explore the challenges faced by educators, educational administrators, and educational institutions in implementing such deeply-rooted personal change.
The program is free and open to the public.
