Presented by: Michael Montoya, PhD, Anthropology + Chicano/Latino Studies, UC Irvine

Long before "flipped" became a thing, educators have been circumventing the schooling paradigm in hopes of transforming the lives of their students. Using interactive examples and philosophical musings on power, politics, and relationships, this workshop explores the ways respect of students and instructors can lead to increased rigor. Along the way, I will share tools, insights, and lessons from my life as a faculty with deep commitment to dialogics and the transformative power of respect.

Michael J. Montoya, PhD, is a professor of anthropology, Chicano/Latino Studies, public health and nursing science at the University of California – Irvine. He also is faculty for The Program in Medical Education for the Latino Community (PRIME-LC), in the School of Medicine. He is the director of the Community Knowledge Project, www.communityknowledgeproject.org which is an experimental space for communities of all kinds to learn and engage in action together. His award winning research examines the ways life-ways become embodied in individuals and groups. Michael has written about the social causes of chronic diseases and the problems of scientific approaches that exclude the voices of those most impacted by them. His recent book, Making the Mexican Diabetic: Race, Science, and the Genetics of Inequality (2011) explores genetic science as only one among many ways to explain who gets diabetes and why.

This event is part of Nadia Kim's Faculty Associate project on Achieving a Rigorous Education that Satisfies Teacher and Learner.
