Building Intersections between Scholarship and Teaching

Location: Norton Center Board Room


Centre College embraces the teacher-scholar model wherein scholarship enriches our teaching and is essential to effective instruction. The purpose of this pedagogy luncheon is to discuss how, both conceptually and practically, scholarship and teaching inform and inspire one another. In so doing, we will address the opportunities, challenges, and methods of fulfilling the teacher-scholar model.

Student Learning through Internships: Implications from a Three-year Study


In January 2015, Mindy Wilson and Ellen Prusinski began a study focusing on student learning and growth in internships. Although we were well aware of how personally meaningful internships can be for students, we knew less about how students learn through the process of completing an internship and, more specifically, how internships help students connect their applied and academic work. This pedagogy lunch will focus on how faculty members and other mentors can use the study results to support student learning in internships going forward.

Responding to student needs in times of stress: “What should I do now?”


At a College that emphasizes personal education, determining when and how to help students can be confusing.  As members of the faculty and staff, and as caring members of our campus community, we want to help but we may not be clear on what approach to take or who else needs to be involved.  Join us for a conversation regarding challenging student situations in and out of the classroom.

There’s Nothing Small about Microaggressions


Microaggressions are not simply a matter of etiquette. Inappropriate or offensive comments have an effect on students, even when made unintentionally by well-meaning and good-hearted people. The purpose of this luncheon is to identify what microaggressions are, how they accumulate over time, and why we should be concerned about their effects. We’ll share examples of microaggressions experienced by Centre College students and discuss ways that we can work to decrease their occurrence in our classrooms.


Facilitated by: Maria Apostolova, Kiana Fields, Ann Goodwin, Rodman King, Chantell Limerick, and Alex McAllister
