Book Discussion: The Slow Professor by Berg & Seeber, Tues. Nov. 13, 12:30 – 1:30 p.m.

A manifesto for creativity and connection in the face of corporate values in higher education that emphasize efficiency, productivity, competition, and regulation.

“We believe that we can combat stress and cynicism – while keeping ourselves alive – by promoting a pedagogy of pleasure.  Such a notion has the additional attraction of being antithetical to corporate values” (35).

The FDC will host several book discussions on The Slow Professor: Challenging the Culture of Speed in the Academy by Maggie Berg & Barbara Seeber (U Toronto P 2016). 90 pages.

Date:   Tuesday, November 13
