Teach the Conflicts!
September 13th at 6pm at the Jefferson Scholars Foundation Hall
Have classrooms become a monoculture? Is there too little room for differing opinions? Students don’t really want it to be this way. Most professors don’t either. In this talk, Mark Edmundson will offer some ways to crack the crust of schoolroom silence and get rich discussions going.
This is the inaugural talk presented by Heterodox Academy at UVA. Bring a friend.
Contact Name: Rafael Triana
ELA 2610, Liberal Arts & the Health Professions
Liberal Arts and the Health Professions introduces 2nd and 3rd year UVA students to diverse health professions while engaging in a career exploration process. Students explore how insights from various disciplines inform their understanding of healthcare. Guest lectures and informational interviews connect students with healthcare professionals to gain a better understanding of the various health professions and to assess their own career goals. Students develop skills in interdisciplinary research and problem solving, in oral and written communication, and the integration of diverse perspectives.
