    Toward A Pedagogy of Compassion: Why Student Laziness Does Not Exist

    Description: Dr. Devon Price, author of the new book Laziness Does Not Exist, presents a research-based approach to dismantle the *laziness lie* in college classrooms. In this talk, Dr. Price will discuss why instructors often see struggling students in an uncharitable light, and how we can all work to be more thoughtful and curious about the unseen barriers people are facing. They will discuss the hallmarks of a compassionate pedagogy, which involves trusting students to articulate their own needs, reducing barriers to educational access, and ending unnecessarily punitive approaches to assessment, grading, and attendance and participation policies.
