Emotionality, Accessibility, and Inclusion: A Discussion on Emotion and Emotive Expression in UBC Classrooms

May 12, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm


This event is part of the 2022 Celebrate Learning Week: https://celebratelearning.ubc.ca/events/2022-events

In this facilitated discussion, faculty, students, and staff are invited to examine how and to what extent emotion can/should be brought into the classroom at UBC. Drawing on our diverse disciplines, life and classroom experiences, and the emotive stakes of our respective fields, we will collectively ponder how classroom emotionality might enrich learning, disrupt inequitable academic conventions, and promote inclusivity and accessibility.

The facilitator, Dr. Pheroze Unwalla, will share his experiences constructing, employing, and assessing classroom emotionality interventions and emotive writing assignments in his Middle East Studies classrooms and welcomes your feedback on those endeavors.

– Pheroze Unwalla, Assistant Professor of Teaching, History, Chair, Middle East Studies
