NEFDC Fall Conference 2019
INTERACTIVE Keynote with Dr. Paul Handstedt:
“The Architecture of Wickedness: Constructing Students Who Can Change the World”
November 8th, 2019, College of the Holy Cross, Worcester, MA
What do we think of our students? How capable are they? How hardworking? How smart? How do our assumptions about our students enable or inhibit their potential? Whether you are teaching or supporting teaching, this keynote workshop will explore these questions as we consider pedagogical approaches that convey to students a powerful sense of their capabilities.
Paul Hanstedt is the John P. Fishwick Professor of English at Roanoke College and Director of The Roanoke College Teaching Collaborative. Beginning in July, he will be the Director of the Center for Academic Resources and Pedagogical Excellence and Professor of Education Studies at Washington and Lee University. He is the recipient of several teaching awards, including a 2013 State Council for Higher Education in Virginia Outstanding Faculty Award and the 2014 CASE-Carnegie Virginia Professor of the Year Award.
Dr. Handstedt has authored several books, including General Education Essentials: A Guide for College Faculty (2012), and Creating Wicked Students: Designing Courses for a Complex World (2018).
