    Race, Class, and Gender: How can we effectively teach about inequality?
    Presenters: Virginia Lea, School of Education & Tom Pearson, Social Science

    In response to both internal and external pressures, there is a widespread movement in higher education to infuse more ethics and social responsibility instruction into the curriculum, but can university effectively do this?  What evidence, if any, supports it?  Are some pedagogies more effective than others, and if so, why?  What can an instructor hope to achieve in a single class?  What can a program or university hope to achieve over 4 - 5 years? Come share your perspective in a lively conversation.
