This session offers  suggestions and solicits ideas for ways to incorporate campus and community events into the design of our courses. As we approach spring programming that includes events for MLK Day, Black History Month, Women’s History Month, and Native American Awareness Week, we discuss ideas for designing syllabi, assignments, activities, and in-class conversations that encourage students to connect what they learn in class to events happening on our campus and community.
