Many communication scholars are interested in teaching courses related to social justice and direct action, but many lack the knowledge or freedom to move forward with such a proposal and syllabus development. This preconference, staffed by experienced college and university educators, is facilitated by Amy Aldridge Sanford, author of the textbook "From Thought to Action: Developing a Social Justice Orientation" (2e) and university administrator in charge of catalog and curriculum. Sanford and colleagues will discuss how to propose a course, create and update syllabi, integrate readings and activities, and handle the challenges of the current political environment. All attendees will receive a complimentary copy of Sanford's textbook from Cognella Academic Publishing and an electronic packet of information related to syllabi, activities, slides, and other information referenced during the session. Attendees are asked to bring a laptop or tablet with access to Adobe Creative Cloud or PowerPoint.
