This session will include suggestions for retaining diverse students online as well as dialoging on topics of inclusivity and diversity in online courses (Barril, 2017; Dixson, 2010; Willging & Johnson, 2009).

Date:
Wednesday, January 16th 2019
Start Time:
2:00 PM
Session Length:
50 minutes
Room:
LSC 308-10
Description:
Feedback is a gift, an opportunity to see things from outside of our own vantage point and grow beyond our current capacities. However, more often than not, when we receive critical feedback that identifies some of our own actions as harmful to others, we become defensive; we resist. This session, offered by members of the Feminist Fight Club for Men at CSU, explores common ways resistance impedes our ability to show up as effective supporters and allies for those who occupy marginalized identities. Utilizing the lens of Sexism and Gender-Based Oppression, examples will be provided to identify a range of responses rooted in resistance, while offering a model for more effectively operationalizing feedback to be and do better.
Goals and Target Audience:
Goals: 1) Familiarize participants with the 'Action Continuum' from Social Justice Education Theory. 2) Identify ways in which participants manifest 'destructive' behaviors. 3) Identify ways in which participants can move towards more 'constructive' behaviors. 4) Disseminate information on resources, including the FFC @ CSU and the FFC For Men, to aid in developing more constructive responses to being called on harmful behaviors.
