We will discuss the advantages and drawbacks of different educational institutions, settings, and types of work within and beyond the academy.


Event Image Exhibition: Home: American photography at the CU Art Museum
11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Home: American photography at the CU Art Museum
March 2 - July 15, 2017

Is home “where the heart is”? Is it a building, a landscape or a state of mind? Drawn from the photography collection of the CU Art Museum, Home investigates how American photographers working from the late 1800s to today have engaged with these questions. Through a presentation of landscapes, family photos and candid portraits visitors are invited to consider central themes of the exhibition, including environment, nostalgia and family.

What does home mean to you?
We invite our guests to respond to the images and ideas presented in the exhibition by visiting a special programming space in our FlexSpace gallery, open from February 2, 2017–March 25, 2017.

This exhibition is generously supported by CU-Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

Event Image CU on the Weekend: Mayan Commoners and Their Uncommon Lives
1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Archaeologists have long known about the opulent lifestyles of Mayan kings, queens and their courts. But what about most Mayans from that time period? During an archaeological survey in 1978 in El Salvador, anthropology professor Payson Sheets discovered an ancient Mayan village buried under fifteen feet of volcanic ash that for the first time offered a clear window into how Mayan commoners lived. In this lecture, Sheets will discuss his discovery of a village he named “Ceren” that was perfectly preserved when a volcano erupted in 660 A.D. The village of about 200 farmers and craftspeople had a surprisingly high quality of life, as indicated by earthquake-resistant architecture, specialized religious and public buildings, ample household buildings, varied diet, and access to some luxury goods. This lecture is part of the CU on the Weekend series, which features some of CU Boulder's most dynamic faculty. The classroom opens at 12:30 p.m. Arriving early is recommended, since seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Advance registration is not required, and reservations will not be accepted.
Event Image COPFFN 2017: Session 1 - Real-World Challenges: Case Studies from University and College Classrooms
1:15 PM - 2:30 PM

Session 1: Real-World Challenges: Case Studies from University and College Classrooms
Donna Sobel, University of Colorado Denver
Candace Berardinelli, University of Colorado Anschutz
Zek Valkyrie, University of Colorado Colorado Springs

Imagine this: You have a student in your class whom you 
suspect of plagiarizing. You call the student to your office to question her about whether her work is original, but she takes offense. The student posts on social media that you ridiculed her, implying that she doesn’t belong in the class and is incapable of using sophisticated, academic language because she is a woman of color. What is going on here? What would you do next? This session will use case studies (real and fictionalized) to discuss challenges we have or may face in the classroom, and strategies about how to address them.


Event Image COPFFN 2017: Session 2: Pedagogy in Cyberspace Mediating Instructor-Student Interaction
1:15 PM - 2:30 PM

Session 2: Pedagogy in Cyberspace: Mediating Instructor-Student Interaction Via Technology
Ken Sagendorf, Regis University
Janice Thorpe, University of Colorado Colorado Springs
Baye Herald, University of Colorado Colorado Springs

How do you interact meaningfully with people you’ve never 
met and probably will never meet in person? How do you deal with sensitive or controversial issues in an online instructional environment? How can you implement inclusive pedagogy in cyberspace? This workshop will focus on how online and hybrid courses are redefining the learning environment, and how we as instructors can prepare for and make choices within it.

Event Image The Rocky Horror Show, the musical
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

“The Rocky Horror Show” is an outrageous mashup of campy science fiction, Marvel-inspired characters, 1960s beach party jams and rock ’n’ roll music of every vintage. When a newly engaged couple gets caught in a storm and meets the tan, muscular new creation of mad transvestite scientist Frank N. Furter, their world is forever changed. First premiered at a small experimental theater in London more than 40 years ago, “The Rocky Horror Show” is now a worldwide stage hit.

Note: CU-Boulder’s University Theatre will provide props for audience members. Please do not bring your own.
