Teaching Circles - Teach Without Fear
2:00 pm to 3:00 pm

This semester, the Wednesday Teaching Circle Series creates opportunity to expand the information learned, and enthusiasm felt, after Chris Emdin’s Convocation presentation. Drawing on For White Folks Who Teach in the Hood, and other texts that apply Emdin’s work in andragogic contexts, this Teaching Circle series will reinvigorate participant’s passion for teaching and learning.

(To get to Emdin’s Convocation Presentation, you must login using your WID + password at Please note that the link provided here to his lecture is password protected and intended for the Los Rios Community exclusively). 

What fears do community college educators in California face today? What fears do we face at CRC and how do they challenge notions of student equity? How does facing one’s fears contribute to improved student services and instruction? This workshop, co-hosted by Donnisha Lugo, Professor of Sociology and Georgine Hodgkinson, expands Emdin’s work to consider fears linked to California community college culture and offers practical strategies to increase student equity and success.

Teaching Circles - Teach Without Fear.  Facilitated by Georgine Hodgkinson
