2024 NCCLA Teaching and Learning Workshop

Engaging with topics that matter – no matter the discipline: The environment, climate change and Latin America

Saturday, April 6, 2024

Beloit College
Beloit, WI

Latin Americanist faculty from all disciplines are invited to participate in the 13th NCCLA Teaching and Learning Workshop. The workshop is intended to build on the cross-disciplinary nature of the NCCLA Conference by bringing together Latin Americanists from a variety of fields to talk about a particular topic or pedagogical tool in an informal, roundtable type of format.  Given the significance of the environment as a humanity issue, how might the topic intersect with our teaching about Latin America? Together we will talk about how we can bring content about the environment and climate change to our history, political science, literature, language, or culture classes.  Participating faculty will share how they equip students with the tools to help them think about their relationship to the environment by learning how people in Latin America relate to theirs.

This is not an event where participants share papers or give presentations. Instead, participants will simply share teaching strategies and resources, challenges, and successes with each other. Our goal is for participants to be able to take direct action in their own courses based on what they’ve learned at the workshop.

Registration Deadline: March 4, 2024

The workshop is cosponsored by the UW-Milwaukee Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CLACS), a Title VI National Resource Center, funded by the U.S. Department of Education.   Registration fee (including Friday dinner and Saturday lunch):  $25 (NCCLA members, CLACS members or RFAs) / $40 (non-member fee includes 1-year NCCLA membership); one night lodging provided for the first 10 participants.

To register, please contact: Julie Kline (UW-Milwaukee) at jkline@uwm.edu
