Program: ESC of Central Ohio Achievement & Leadership Services

Dates: 7/24/2018

This film is being offered during the PBL Ohio Institute, but is open to anyone to attend. Registration is required. In the documentary Miss Representation, Jennifer Newsom exposes the bold reality of western culture and our continuous idea that a woman's ability to hold positions of power and influence in society is being overlooked by her sexuality and beauty. The movie challenges how mainstream media's sexism plays a pivotal role in a woman's ability to attain a leadership role in a society where the media is the most convincing force shaping norms. The message is clear: a woman's power lies in her youth, physical attractiveness, her sexuality, and not in her capability as a front-runner. Watch as this documentary builds momentum with an array of inspirational stories and interviews with leading academics, journalists, entertainers, and activists.

17. The Mask You Live In - Film Documentary

Program: ESC of Central Ohio Achievement & Leadership Services

Dates: 7/25/2018

This Film Screening is being held in conjunction with the PBL Ohio Institute. It is open for anyone to attend, but registration is required. "The Mask You Live In" follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America’s narrow definition of masculinity. Pressured by the media, their peer group, and even the adults in their lives, our protagonists confront messages encouraging them to disconnect from their emotions, devalue authentic friendships, objectify and degrade women, and resolve conflicts through violence. These gender stereotypes interconnect with race, class, and circumstance, creating a maze of identity issues boys and young men must navigate to become “real” men. Experts in neuroscience, psychology, sociology, sports, education, and media also weigh in, offering empirical evidence of the “boy crisis” and tactics to combat it. "The Mask You Live In" ultimately illustrates how we, as a society, can raise a healthier generation of boys and young men.

Program: ESC of Central Ohio Achievement & Leadership Services

Dates: 9/26/2018 to 10/10/2018

Project Based Learning (PBL), is a teaching method in which students gain knowledge and skills by working through a process of sustained inquiry in response to a complex question, problem, or challenge. This interactive three-day workshop has three basic parts: Project Design, Assessment, and Management. It is designed to teach the basics of PBL through exemplifying the experience of a project, video analysis of best classroom practice, exploration of PBL tools and project libraries, and development of a project with opportunities for critique & revision. By the end of this workshop, participants will have designed a project for use in their own classroom and will have a better understanding of: 1) The difference between PBL and "doing projects" 2) The need to provide students with opportunities to practice 21st century competencies balanced with learning significant content; and 3) How to manage a project in the classroom. The third day of the workshop is purposefully designed to provide participants with time to gain the knowledge and skills to help them plan their project while allowing time for additional research, refinement, gathering of resources, assessment alignment, and peer review before finalizing their high-quality PBL. Ashland graduate credit is available for an additional $249. Lunch is on own. Training dates are 9/26/18, 10/3/18 & 10/10/18.

Program: ESC of Central Ohio Achievement & Leadership Services

Dates: 9/28/2018

The Humanities Department at Columbus State will host the third annual When East Meets West symposium on Friday, September 28, 2018 from 9:00am-3:00pm. This year’s topic focuses on Health and Healing Across Global Cultures, with particular focus on the intersection of eastern and western medical practices in the classical world as well as the modern era. The symposium offers a morning and afternoon session; each session consists of two speakers followed by a moderated discussion with the speakers and audience.

This year’s symposium is inspired by the new History of Western Medicine class created by CSCC Humanities’ faculty, specifically aimed at Health and Human Services students and professionals. Speakers include Dr. Maddalena Rumor, Visiting Assistant Professor, Case Western University, and Dr. Roberto Padilla, Associate Professor of History at the University of Toledo. The symposium offers educators, students, and the general public an opportunity to learn about how eastern and western medical practices connect with larger themes across history and culture.

The symposium presents an excellent professional development opportunity and fulfills 7.5 contact hours. Parking is free, and a buffet lunch is included with the $25.00 registration fee. Teachers will also receive resources for incorporating medical history and theory into broader themes in the classroom, including primary and secondary sources.
