The Scholarly Research and Writing group is a support network designed to allow faculty to meet regularly to set goals, share progress and setbacks on their research and writing, and encourage one another in their scholarly projects. We do not exchange or workshop our writing, but rather we use the meetings to keep us active and accountable in our diverse research and writing projects.  Past participants have worked on and completed book proposals and chapters, articles, conference proposals and papers, podcasts, posters, textbooks, surveys, and professional resources.  If you have questions about the group, are interested in participating, or would like to set up a second meeting group that meets at another time, please email Marlowe Daly-Galeano at hmdalygaleano@lcsc.edu. Or just show up at the first meeting.

Applying Affective Science, through Beauty, to develop Deep Learning - Rhett Diessner

The first part of this workshop will be a hands-on engaging activity in which beautiful art is the subtext for helping students think like social scientists and reach a deeper understanding of course objectives. The second part will be modeling of story-telling to address some of the deepest issues of human existence while immersing students in visual beauty. Experiences of beauty in the classroom evoke the emotions emphasized in Cavanaugh's work on affective science in the classroom.
