The book Just Mercy is at once an unforgettable account of an idealistic, gifted young lawyer’s coming of age, a moving window into the lives of those he has defended, and an inspiring argument for compassion in the pursuit of true justice.  Bryan Stevenson was a young lawyer when he founded the Equal Justice Initiative, a legal practice dedicated to defending those most desperate and in need: the poor, the wrongly condemned, and women and children trapped in the farthest reaches of our criminal justice system. One of his first cases was that of Walter McMillian, a young man who was sentenced to die for a notorious murder he insisted he didn’t commit. The case drew Bryan into a tangle of conspiracy, political machination, and legal brinksmanship—and transformed his understanding of mercy and justice forever.

The book Just Mercy is at once an unforgettable account of an idealistic, gifted young lawyer’s coming of age, a moving window into the lives of those he has defended, and an inspiring argument for compassion in the pursuit of true justice.  Bryan Stevenson was a young lawyer when he founded the Equal Justice Initiative, a legal practice dedicated to defending those most desperate and in need: the poor, the wrongly condemned, and women and children trapped in the farthest reaches of our criminal justice system. One of his first cases was that of Walter McMillian, a young man who was sentenced to die for a notorious murder he insisted he didn’t commit. The case drew Bryan into a tangle of conspiracy, political machination, and legal brinksmanship—and transformed his understanding of mercy and justice forever.

December

Dec 7, Fri Diversity Book Club - Trip

Our book club this semester will have several meetings and a trip to the Equal Justice Initiative Museum and Memorial in Montgomery, AL.  Participants who attend any 3 of the 5 sessions (in person or online) will be eligible to receive lunch and a ticket to the Equal Justice Initiative Museum and Memorial in Montgomery, AL. on Dec 7th.   Participants must provide their own transportation to Montgomery, AL and have supervisor approval to attend the trip.

The book Just Mercy is at once an unforgettable account of an idealistic, gifted young lawyer’s coming of age, a moving window into the lives of those he has defended, and an inspiring argument for compassion in the pursuit of true justice.  Bryan Stevenson was a young lawyer when he founded the Equal Justice Initiative, a legal practice dedicated to defending those most desperate and in need: the poor, the wrongly condemned, and women and children trapped in the farthest reaches of our criminal justice system. One of his first cases was that of Walter McMillian, a young man who was sentenced to die for a notorious murder he insisted he didn’t commit. The case drew Bryan into a tangle of conspiracy, political machination, and legal brinksmanship—and transformed his understanding of mercy and justice forever.

Magna Seminar: Building a Tougher Student: Applying the Research on Intellectual Development

As new students enter your institution each year, they bring a new way of thinking and learning with them. For this reason, you must understand how to mold your teaching to fit the needs of today’s learners.  Have you noticed that students are less resilient than they were in the past? Are they less able to think critically? Many instructors would agree.  By applying research on how students learn and intellectually develop, you can foster a growth mindset, improve learning, and ultimately build tougher modern learners.  Are you ready to improve the way students learn in your classroom?  

This is a webinar that you can join from anywhere, please emaill cpe [at] tcc.fl.edu for the login information.

Magna Seminar: Strategies for Making Lectures More Active, Engaging, and Meaningful

Lecture is an efficient way to deliver a large amount of information to a large group of students, but it has long been criticized for failing to engage students and promote higher level thinking skills. Despite the criticisms, lectures still prevail in many institutions across subject areas. Many faculty rely on lecturing as the default instructional approach.

Are you ready to heighten student engagement as you lecture? By implementing some simple, research-driven solutions, you can do just that! You’ll learn low-risk instructional strategies for transforming lectures into student-centered learning experiences.

Magna Seminar: Wake Them Up! Engaging Students in the Twenty-First-Century Classroom

Classroom video started as recorded lectures, then morphed into searchable lectures or dividing lectures into chunks. But by thinking about video a little differently—in terms of microlectures, series, and challenge videos—you’ll not only better engage your students but also make a bigger impact on a greater group of people. This in turn can lead to a vast array of opportunities to establish your expertise in your field, increase your exposure, and acquire greater grant and research funding. You’ll learn multiple ways to conceptualize video use in and out of the classroom. Explore video’s role in various aspects of academic life as well as how video can help establish your expertise and open opportunities beyond the classroom.
