Embracing Innovation: Transcending Tradition in Twenty-First Century Higher Education
CCRWT will present its fourth annual interdisciplinary conference on Friday, October 28, 2016. The primary objectives of this year's conference are to explore innovative pedagogical practices that both enrich and transcend traditional teaching methods, and to inspire a contemplative, cross-disciplinary dialogue regarding higher education in the twenty-first century.
In the preface to Borderlands, Gloria Anzaldúa declares: "I am a border woman." As simple as it sounds, this statement suggests the individual's agency in the social and cultural production of personal identity as it boldly rejects to acknowledge the power of the state in the process.
This panel seeks papers from scholars working across the disciplines interested in employing interdisciplinary or otherwise innovative methodologies aimed at facilitating teaching and learning about the Anthropocene at all levels.
