"Continuing the Dialogue: Teaching From the Heart--Seeking Identity and Integrity in Teaching"
Dr. Rosalyn M. King, CTE Chair, Facilitator
Friday, April 6, 2007
1:00pm - 4:00pm
"We become teachers for reasons of the heart. But many of us lose heart as time goes by.
How can we take heart, alone and together, so we can give heart to our students and our world--
which is what good teachers do. Parker J. Palmer
This colloquy will be a continuation of the seminar and teleconference begun last Spring with Dr. Parker Palmer and discussion of his book, The Courage to Teach. There was insufficient time to effectively engage in dialogue at the seminar, due to extended dialogue with Parker Palmer. Faculty participants requested a follow-up session. This session will be facilitated by CTE Chair, Dr. Rosalyn M. King and will provide faculty with the opportunity to engage in dialogue and reflection about teaching using Parker Palmer's book and excerpts from his philosophy as a guide.
Faculty participants will be led through a set of reflective practices and dialogue, with the major question being, "who is the self that teaches?" Hopefully, faculty will leave this seminar with clarity and renewal. Any interested faculty are invited to participate. Excerpts of Parker Palmer's work, along with the discussion guide are attached for your review and preparation for the seminar. You are encouraged also to visit the related links identified below that would be helpful to your reflective study in preparation for the seminar.
