The Center for Teaching and Learning will host a five-part conversation for full and part-time faculty on “Whistling Vivaldi” by Claude Steele.
In the book, Steele discusses the negative implications of social stereotypes related to gender and race. He shares personal stories and research results to illustrate how the phenomenon of “stereotype threat” permeates American culture, particularly in schools and colleges. The CTL will provide copies of the book in exchange for full participation in the group.
Sessions will begin in February and take place on Fridays from noon to 1:15 p.m. Lunch will be served. A complete schedule is available online.
CTL faculty reading communities are capped to allow ample conversation; please register via email to Jennifer Maney, the Catholic Jesuit higher education cooperative coordinator.
