  • Add to Calendar 2019-12-10 13:00:00 2019-12-10 14:30:00 "Strategic Design for Individual, Social, and Community Impact" "Strategic Design for Individual, Social, and Community Impact" Professor Kimberly B. Rogers, Assistant Professor of Sociology, Dartmouth University Bio: Professor Kimberly B. Rogers will examine how different courses in the social sciences can be redesigned for inclusion. First she will discuss the incorporation of active learning practices into large enrollment classes, Second, she will discuss the redesign of her lower-level topics courses, which introduces students to theories that identify mechanisms of inequality operating through interactions and small group dynamics and encourages them to think of these mechanisms as inflection points for social change. Third, Rogers will discuss the redesign of upper-level courses to incorporate Social Impact Practicums, project-based experiential learning opportunities that enable students to address community needs in partnership with local nonprofit organizations. She will close by discussing interventions at the department level that can help scaffold this work across the curriculum and direct students into capstone experiences that better serve their educational and career goals. Abstract: Engaged research and teaching are at the heart of Rogers' intellectual work. Her research examines behavioral and emotional responses to stereotyped groups and unfair reward distributions, evaluates the degree of consensus in identity sentiments within and between cultures, explores how stable interaction patterns emerge from uncertain perceptions of identities, and considers emotions as both symptoms and sources of inequality. Through her work, Rogers strives to build connections between sociological knowledge about inequality and the people and organizations equipped to leverage this knowledge for social intervention.
