PLENARY | Making Connections: Thinking about Teaching as Relational
Eleanor MacDonald, Political Studies

Teaching involves not only the transmission of skills and knowledge. It also requires the formation of relationships between and among students and teachers. This session focuses on developing awareness of the ways in which those relationships are built, and how, as teachers, we can work towards creating conditions in which our students experience themselves as recognized, by each other and especially by us. Although some measures we can take may seem obvious, like being respectful and giving useful feedback — other considerations may be more subtle. Among these are identifying the effect of power dynamics on relationships, the effects of our own identities and individuality on our students, and the obstacles that frequently confound pedagogical relationships.  The session will combine both lecture and interactive components.
