CEAP Diversity Blog to Launch in April

On April 9, 2012, the College of Education and Allied Professions will launch its first Blog sponsored by the College Diversity Committee and facilitated by Lewis Isaac.  The Blog is open to all students and faculty in our college.    It will be accessible through an “organization” on blackboard.  People participating in the blog will have access to a recent New York Times article, as well as, to some other resources.  Our guest blogger, Lewis Isaac, will post his comments on the article and interact  with faculty and students via the blog.  The blog will give faculty and students, both residential and distance , an opportunity to participate in a “diversity dialogue” that is asynchronous.  The Blog will run for a 2 week period to give faculty and students plenty of opportunity to participate.  Lewis Isaac will be responding to posts on the blog.

For further information, including possible incorporation of this activity into your classes, please contact Lisa Bloom or John Habel.
