“Empathy and Diversity in Professional Education: The Fight Against Social Separation and Implicit Bias” will be discussed at this month’s Future of Higher Education Forum.

The program will be held Wednesday, March 20, at 10 a.m. in Carlson Library Room 1005.

Dr. Heather Sloane, assistant professor in the Social Work Program, will lead the forum.

She will discuss transparent learning, an approach to course and assignment design that emphasizes how and why students are asked to learn content in particular ways.

“This approach, because it articulates the literal process whereby success is achieved, is particularly beneficial for students who are unfamiliar with best practices in college courses,” Sloane said.

The Future of Higher Education Forums are coordinated by the Office of the Provost.

Register for this month’s program and read more about the forums, including how to submit proposals for upcoming events, at the Office of the Provost website.

Faculty members who are unable to attend the forum can watch live on the Office of the Provost website. In addition, all forums are archived for future viewing.
