Open Door Project Hours with Shani Peters @ Kresge Art Center Conference Room 126A | East Lansing | Michigan | United States

The Womxn of Color Initiatives (WOCI), an effort to organize events for women of color and their allies at Michigan State University and in the greater Lansing community, is bringing MSU alumna Shani Peters back to campus during the month of March as an Artist-In-Residence to work on a collaborative arts practice project – “Sustain: A Demonstration/Modeling Survival and Self Care Tactics as Public Service” – that will focus on strategies for surviving racism in America.

Her work encompasses community building, activism histories, the subversion of popular media, and the creation of accessible imaginative experiences. She seeks to create environments and experiences that offer respite from painful realities – opportunities for collective power, learning, peace, and wonderment.

We invite you to join us for a month of events! 

“Open Door Project Hours” with Shani Peters will be located in the Kresge Art Center Conference Room 126A on the following dates:

March 13th 3 – 5 PM
March 16th 3 – 5 PM

Teaching to who and where students are: Making courses accessible @ Digital Scholarship Lab (2nd floor of the west wing in the MSU Main Library)

Teaching to who and where students are: Making courses accessible @ Digital Scholarship Lab (2nd floor of the west wing in the MSU Main Library)

Presenters: Madeline Shellgren

This workshop focuses on various notions of accessibility. We will start with questioning who students are and why that is important to consider. Together, we will also explore ways to make space for identity and student agency, discussing how we can help create opportunities for students to empower themselves and find relevance in course content, curriculum, and design. We will then move to ways to critically leverage today’s technology, specifically focusing on intentional and ongoing work we can do as instructors to remove barriers to information and education.

Liaisons in French: What are students really learning in class? @ B135 Wells Hall
Mar 15 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Liaisons in French: What are students really learning in class? @ B135 Wells Hall

Presenter: Dr. Anne Violin-Wigent

As part of my current investigation on the effectiveness of explicit instruction, this project investigates the evolution of the accuracy of French liaisons produced by students over a semester. Do they actually produce French liaisons more accurately after they are given the list of explicit rules than before? How do they change after the lesson? After a brief explanation of what French liaisons are, I will present preliminary results that compare students enrolled in a French phonetics and pronunciation class (FRN 330) where they are taught the rules, to students enrolled in FRN 320, a grammar and writing class that does not include liaisons at all.

This workshop meets on Thursday from 3-4 pm in B135 Wells Hall. Cookies and coffee will be served.

Two unemployed young men meet a rather fringe character called Das. Das is essentially a courteous kidnapper. If he had any wealth, he could be called a gentleman kidnapper. And it’s the three trying to pull a high profile kidnapping, but other characters come in to mess it up. All the while, they’re being chased by a mute cop who’s very good at what he does. The movie features several great character actors from the industry and insane music.

Promoting foreign language study in middle schools @ B135 Wells Hall

Promoting foreign language study in middle schools @ B135 Wells Hall

Presenter: Alissa Cohen

This workshop will explore some of the challenges of promoting language study among American school children and look at the CeLTA Fellowship project I conducted this year to address some of these challenges. I will provide an overview of a language exploration club that was designed to introduce students at East Lansing’s MacDonald Middle School to the study of foreign languages in general and, more specifically, to the languages offered at the school, French, German, and Spanish. The goal of the project was twofold: To promote foreign language study by middle schoolers and to promote service learning and teaching practice by MSU students in the fields of language learning and teaching. Participants in this workshop will have the opportunity to review and evaluate the structure, materials, and outcomes of the program and contribute to the revision process, with an ultimate goal of encouraging greater future participation among the middle schoolers and MSU student teacher volunteers and to create contacts and collaborations across the many MSU units involved in promoting language teaching and learning.
