Exciting news! Graduate students from English<http://www.ohio.edu/english>, Philosophy<http://www.philosophy.ohiou.edu/>, and Education are hosting the first annual Graduate Student Pedagogy Conference, “Perfecting Pedagogical Practices,” on Friday, Feb. 12, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Friends of the Library Room, Alden 319.

The event is an interdepartmental effort to generate conversation among graduate instructors and adjunct faculty members about best practices in teaching, tips, and classroom activities. The conference seeks to create a space for practitioners to talk about what they do in their pedagogy, what they have tried in class, and what has proven successful.

This one-day event will provide an opportunity for presenters to share their best practices as teachers and foster discussion of pedagogical practices. Ohio University graduate student and faculty presentations will cover topics including:

  *   Tips for classroom management
  *   Ideas for course design and assignments
  *   How to effectively incorporate media in the classroom.

Dr. Mara Holt<https://www.ohio.edu/cas/english/contact/profiles.cfm?profile=holt>, Associate Professor of English and Director of Composition, will give the keynote address, "Teaching U.S. and Transnational Feminisms with Thelma and Louise (1991) and Chaos (2001)."

Graduate students and faculty from all disciplines are invited to attend. Refreshments will be provided. For more information, visit our website at http://reneebenham.wix.com/pedagogyconference16.
