On Tuesday, April 8, Philosophy professor Sara Shady presented Corrupting the Youth?: The Value of Teaching “Dangerous” Ideas at the Bethel University Library as the 2014 winner of the Faculty Excellence Award for Teaching.
She introduces her talk with the following:
Teaching can be controversial. Socrates was convicted and executed on charges that he corrupted the youth of Athens. In this presentation, I’ll explore the important role “dangerous” ideas can play in cultivating a classroom that is not just a place where we transfer information, but an embodied space where transformation takes place.
