Engaging Difference: Supporting LD, ELL, First-in-family and Other Exceptional Learners

updated:

NeMLA, March 2019, Washington D.C.
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

In typical college classrooms, instructors face large groups of highly diverse students. In fact, students are often so diverse that even their diversity is diverse. Differences in educational background, family support systems, English-language proficiency, abilities and disabilities, and more, can strongly impact students' capacities to fulfill course expectations.

But while "differentiation" has become a pervasive buzzword within K-12 pedagogy, in higher education it remains unclear exactly how, where, when, and whose responsibility it is to engage and support students with various learning challenges.

Shifting the Absent Present: Pedagogical Approaches for More Inclusive Spaces

updated: 
Monday, August 13, 2018 - 2:26pm
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

This session seeks to use the concept of the absent present (that which is embodied by students but unacknowledged) within the classroom as a method of disclosure. Such a method is dedicated to both the literal and figurative spaces that foster agency for students and instructors as they embody and articulate multiple critical identities. Particular focus will be placed on the ways student backgrounds and identities are erased or ignored through various means including syllabi, modeled language, instructor feedback, and assignment and assessment structures. Attention to that which is present within our students but goes unacknowledged or undervalued allows for the exploration of ways to better foster more inclusive spaces.

updated:

Margie Burns/Northeast MLA (NeMLA) Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

This session focuses on gender and contingency in the university work force and in the digital economy. Emphasis is on contingency in relation to women employed as adjuncts or other contingent faculty in universities, such as contract workers in the digital economy. This panel invites papers on approaches to deal with contingency and gender, including formal or structural models, reforms, and collective bargaining. The panel invites papers on efforts including localized or workplace-specific approaches and on related plans.
