Nel Noddings speaks on teaching controversial issues
Tuesday, October 17, 2017 - 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Noddings is Lee Jacks Professor of Education, Emerita, at Stanford University. Her books include Education and Democracy in the 21st Century, When School Reform Goes Wrong, The Challenge to Care in Schools, Educating Citizens for Global Awareness, Educating for Intelligent Belief or Unbelief, and Educating Moral People. Her book Caring: A Feminine Approach to Ethics and Moral Education is one of the most influential texts in ethics and feminist theory in the 20th century.
In our often polarized American political climate, it’s more relevant than ever to consider how to encourage critical reflection, empathy, and the ability to converse across divides in both K-12 and higher education settings. This lecture is free and open to the public, and is part of Green Mountain College’s mission to advance social sustainability in our communities.
