Educator as Activist
Susan Joudrey, Ph.D.

Les T. Johnson, Ph.D.
Educational Developer (eLearning)
We all design, organize, and curate our courses with specific goals and outcomes in mind. Often, these decisions are informed by considering what the students need to know in order to be successful in the rest of their degree program, as well as in their future careers. But what are our aspirations for the students as they leave the classroom and engage in society beyond academia? Who do we hope they will be? This session, through activity and discussion, examines what it means to be an activist through our teaching and explores the ethical implications of educator-as-activist.
