A reminder that the first CLAH Teaching Section spring teaching workshop will take place next Thursday, February 25, at 3pm ET. Join Prof. Aiala Levy to talk about her use of collaborative note taking exercises in her teaching. She’ll be introducing digital tools that facilitate group work, and there will be plenty of time for q&a and conversation.

I wonder if anyone would be interested in putting together a pedagogy-focused roundtable for ASEEES on strategies for decolonizing the Russian/Soviet art history survey? I'm thinking presenters could offer brief propositions/provcations/lesson plans/reading suggestions/activities that can be adapted by audience members to their own classroom uses. If interested in either helping organize or presenting on such a panel, please email me at yelena [at] msu.edu.
