Developing Empathy: The Refugee Experience

October 7, 2018, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM (US Central)

Christian Petersen Art Museum

Held in the exhibition Unpacked: Refugee Baggage, participants will be facilitated in making contemporary connections to the refugee experience using the reflective model developed by the civics education organization, Facing History and Ourselves.  Facing History and Ourselves provides teachers with content resources and pedagogical strategies to promote classroom conversations about challenging topics. Drawing on her collaborative work with the organization, Dr. Richardson Bruna, associate professor in the School of Education, will model the use of these resources and strategies in encouraging collective meaning-making related to the exhibition.
