Teaching Controversial Topics
USC Center for the Political Future
Higher Education has come under increased scrutiny in recent years as our classrooms and campuses become more and more divided along political lines. Join us as we discuss the challenges of teaching controversial topics, and the strategies of how we can equip our staff, faculty, and students to create a more inclusive learning environment at USC.
With introduction provided by USC Academic Senate President, Tracy Poon Tambascia, our participants will include:
– Kamy Akhavan, Executive Director for the Dornsife Center for the Political Future
– Ingrid Steiner, Associate Director of Faculty Development with the Center for Excellence in Teaching
– Kimberly Freeman, Associate Dean and Chief Diversity Officer for the Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences
