Join the Taylor Center for its first Social Innovation Conversation (SIC) of the 2020-2021 academic year. This event kicks off Taylor's Social Innovation Conversation (SIC) series, a program from the Research and Scholarship team which is aimed at scholars, faculty, community partners, and anyone interested in the ways their research efforts connect with the pursuit of social innovation and changemaking.
Join the Taylor Center at this interactive discussion with two faculty members who became directors of nonprofit organizations. Dr. Mallory Monaco Caterine is a Professor of Practice in Classical Studies and a co-director and a founding member of Kallion, a non-profit organization whose mission is to design and develop communities around the study of humanities and unlock the human talent able to develop creative, benevolent, and lasting improvements to our common condition. Dr. Shannon Blady is a Professor of Practice at Tulane’s Teacher Preparation and Certification Program and the Executive Director of AfterCLASS, a non-profit whose mission is to provide professional, emotional, and social support to local educators and elevate the profession of teaching.
Rebecca Otten will be a speaker in Ashoka U’s "Leading for Resilience and Relevance in Higher Ed", a two-part virtual series for educators and leaders in higher education seeking to harness the power of changemaking in the classroom and across campus.
Otten is a Professor of Practice and the Director of Strategy & Engagement at the Taylor Center, and the former director of the Tulane School of Architecture’s minor in Social Innovation and Social Entrepreneurship (SISE).
This month the Research and Scholarship Team is piloting a new writing challenge structure: a November writing support group.
This semester is coming to a close and to say that it has been challenging does not fully express the arduous nature of Fall 2020. Keeping this in mind and with Thanksgiving quickly approaching, we are hosting a two-week writing support group. We want to create an empathetic space for researchers and scholars to accomplish personal writing goals while coping with the effects of multiple stressors (the global pandemic, recent hurricane, presidential election, upcoming holiday season, or any other personal obstacles we may not know about).
