Join us for a discussion on diversity and international experiences. Workshop 4 will be the first in our two part mini-series on interracial/cross cultural relationships. We will explore "relationships" as a broad topic, including friendships, work colleagues, and romantic relationships. How do cultural norms transfer and adapt in different settings? How do you recognize and navigate toxic behavior? How can we better prepare ourselves to identify our own bias and challenge others? Topics will include stereotypes, festishization, global beauty standards, cultural norms, and more.

The ExCITe Center's Learning Innovation initiative examines the pedagogical depth and impact of practices facilitated through makerspaces and similar hands-on creative learning environments. With the relative lack of quantitative data available for assessment, detailed interviews and the development of new data through linguistic coding were conducted as the basis of analysis and evaluation. Preliminary findings are shared as a more comprehensive understanding of maker practices are developed as a potential driver for education reform.

Craig Steven Wilder is a professor of history at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Wilder’s most recent book, Ebony & Ivy: Race, Slavery, and the Troubled History of America’s Universities argues that the nation’s early colleges were dependent on wealth accrued from slavery and played a major role in the extermination of indigenous populations and the enslavement of people of African descent.
