Food for Thought

If an adult wants to learn something new, do they read a textbook and diligently take notes? Nope. Lifelong learners use a variety of sources: YouTube, blogs, podcasts, Wikipedia and even TikTok. If we don't supplement traditional sources and teaching materials with 21st century media, we are missing the opportunity to train students to learn from and examine critically the wealth of knowledge that exists on the internet. Oh yeah, and kids will enjoy learning (and your class) way more!

Join the LBJ Library and Emily Glankler for the inaugural session of Food for Thought, where we discuss impactful pedagogy for all ages and content areas.

With a B.A. and M.A. in History, Emily Glankler has taught history and current events courses from 6th grade through high school for over a decade at a variety of schools in Austin, Texas. She also has a podcast, YouTube channel, and TikTok account called "Anti-Social Studies" that teaches history and current events to students (and adults) beyond her classroom.

For your participation in "Food for Thought", you will earn 1.5 CEU hours; a certificate will be available upon completion the discussion. 

Registration for this event will close at 10:00pm CST on Friday, March 31, 2023.
